I would appreciate such a change. I often have static lists in my programs,
which need to be changed from time to time.
Ok, it's not a big deal to change the upper border (and if I forget it I am reminded ;-)),
but it would make life easier a bit if it could be automatic and it looks like an 
intuitive enhancement in the spirit of pascal.
