      Maybe instead of numbering all lines -- unless that's useful for something else -- if just the beginnings of copied lines were flagged in the original doc with some unique marker, the final loop (which pastes edited lines) could rely just on the top-to-bottom sequence of rapid finds (e.g. "^\*.+") precisely matching the order of array elements (lines) to be inserted.

      I actually like the idea of "perpetual stew" (e.g. bigos); I just somehow cannot manage to make it bad enough -- and enough of it -- to last to its target maturity. :)
