I hope to get back to this soon, but the SRU team rejected the change
because sometimes you'd have to enter just one character and sometimes
you'd have to enter a character and a space e.g. '3 ' if there were more
than 9 choices.

I've still no idea why the initial decision was made to accept only one
character.
