some time the values that NUMBER could take were hardcoded, and that
the person who coded that bit was thereby forced to use TORSO.
If you take a look at the modern gamemode, you will see that these
days the NUMBER tag will even use a direct number, as the Vehicle slot
there is using NUMBER:1, so with your own gamemode you should even be
able to use: EQSLOT:Fingers CONTAINS:Ring=1 NUMBER:2 - without the
need to define a default RINGS numslot.
