I like the idea a lot. I have merged your patch (with a few minor typos such as BACKED->BACKEND, or CVS->CSV).

Right now, I'm a bit worried about the requirement to assign ids > 1000 and the fact that we don't check for conflicts (I know people with almost 500 instances).

But we'll be able to improve this later. I have already identified that proxies should be dual-linked. It will then be easier to move instances in the list, then automatically assign numbers to the unnumberred ones.
