Could we get a flow 0?

Ok, this is gonna be kind of a weird one, but hear me out…

What I propose is some sort of project option that would number the flows from 0 rather than 1.

My reasoning for this is that a fairly common musical form is the theme and variations. What I would like is to be able to have the flows numbered such that they line with the variations. So, the Theme is Flow 0, Variation 1 is Flow 1, Variation N is Flow N, etc. Instead of the current Theme is Flow 1, Variation 1 is Flow 2, Variation N is Flow N+1

Basically just something to save the human a little mental bandwidth.

Presumably one could put the numbers one wanted as part of the Flow Titles, which are completely customizable in the File Info panel and elsewhere.

Why not just name your flows?

(A workaround) Create N flows. Drag the Nth to the beginning. Now you have Flow N (Theme) and N-1 flows for variations numbered as you would like!

Or be able to do basic arithmetic on the Flow tokens. i.e. {@flowNumber@} - 1

Advice from an old programmer, don’t worry about 0 or 1 based indexing, it’s not worth it.
