Yes. I suppose it will have to be ~n rather than ~+n, or maybe both
could be available. It would just be very neat to have only ~+whatever
and ~-whatever treated specially.

There's a slight problem there if a numeric username clashes with a
directory stack reference. Unless anyone has any major objections,
then when the next testing/beta release is made I'll code the following
o It will not be possible to add a directory name starting with +, - or
a digit to the hash table;
o When a directory is looked up for %~ prompt sequences and similar,
only entries in the hash table will be used (this is actually what is
o When a ~ sequence is expanded, anything starting with +, - or a digit
will not be looked up in the hash table, though the empty sequence
(i.e. ~/whatever) will be;
o ~+ and ~- will be as they are now, ~n will refer to what =n currently
refers to regardless of PUSHD_MINUS (is this what was meant by
"absolute" stack references?), and (this is the only really new bit,
does anyone want it?) ~+n and ~-n will refer to directory stack
entries in accordance with PUSHD_MINUS.
