EditChapterPlugin and ExplicitNumberingPlugin are incompatible

EditChapterPlugin only recognizes headings of the form ---+, ---++, ...
But ExplicitNumberingPlugin requires the form ---#, ---##, ...

Editing a chapter with heading ---### foo causes the number to become fixed (i.e., hard-coded) as ---+++0.0.1 foo

Playing around with the order of plugin loading didn't help:
  • With the default (alphabetical) plugin order, the section don't get numbered
  • With ExplicitNumberingPlugin evaluated first, the sections are numbered in view mode, but editing a chapter still causes the number to become hard-coded.
I think all that's needed is for EditChapterPlugin to recognize the additional ---#* form. That isn't working, even though the release notes indicate "support for legacy heading markup like "--------#####", but I can't figure out the code:
  • /lib/TWiki/Plugins/EditChapterPlugin/ has three instances of "\+#". Should that be "\+\#" since # is interpreted as the start of a comment (at least it is in my text editor).
  • two of those three instances appear as "---+[\+#]". Does that mean a leading + is assumed? Also shouldn't that be escaped as "\-\-\-\+" since those are special purpose characters in regular expressions?

In the meantime, I'm using a work-around based on TWiki:Sandbox/NumberedHeadingsWithNesting, but I can't let it generate the plus signs in the headers for EditChapterPlugin:
  1. include this comment in the topic
    <!-- Define variables with formulae for different levels, hidden in HTML comments (start at 2!):
       * Set NH2 = %CALC{$SETM(nh2,+1) $SET(nh3,0) $GET(nh2).}%
       * Set NH3 = %CALC{$SETM(nh3,+1) $SET(nh4,0) $GET(nh2).$GET(nh3).}%
       * Set NH4 = %CALC{$SETM(nh4,+1) $SET(nh5,0) $GET(nh2).$GET(nh3).$GET(nh4).}%
       * Set NH5 = %CALC{$SETM(nh5,+1)             $GET(nh2).$GET(nh3).$GET(nh4).$GET(nh5).}%
       * Initialize values: %CALC{$SET(nh2,0) $SET(nh3,0) $SET(nh4,0) $SET(nh5,0)}%
  2. Then use headers like:
          ---++ %NH2%
          ---+++ %NH3%
          ---++++ %NH4%
          ---+++++ %NH5%

This is fixed in the recent release of ExplicitNumberingPlugin. It was released for testing on 3 March 2009. The plugin now removes any <textarea> elements prior to rendering the headings. Please open a new Task against ExplicitNumberingPlugin if this is still an issue.
