Bug Description

In the current packaging guide, sections (and subsections) are numbered only in the table of contents (1. Introduction, 1. Where to begin, 2. Prerequisites). I believe it is useful repeat these identifiers also in the guide (not only in the contents). The proposed behavior for example is generally used by Latex and is also used in Debian guides like http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-uptodate.en.html

I believe that also the numeration used in the table of contents of the current packaging guide is improvable using a progressive numerations that takes into consideration the hierarchy of each section. So for example the current table of contents from:
1. Introduction
    1. Where to begin
    2. Prerequisites
could became something like:
1. Introduction
    1.1 Where to begin
    1.2 Prerequisites
