Summary:Improve counter=equation

Report

It would be nice, if one could use brackets (or other symbols) around the equation numbers (or other counters).

\newcommand*{\hyperbracket}[1]{(\glshypernumber{#1})} doesn't work, because it produces e.g. (2.4,2.5) and not (2.4),(2.5).

An option would be to introduce something along the lines of

\newcommand{\leftsideofnumber}{(}
\newcommand{\rightsideofnumber}{)}
\makeatletter
\def\@@delimN#1\delimN #2\delimN#3\\{%
\ifx\\#3\\%
  \leftsideofnumber\@gls@numberlink{#1}\rightsideofnumber%
\else
  \leftsideofnumber\@gls@numberlink{#1}\rightsideofnumber\delimN\leftsideofnumber\@gls@numberlink{#2}\rightsideofnumber%
\fi
}
\makeatother
It would be nice if this could be implemented as an option to the \printglossary command, e.g. as \printglossary[title=test,surroundnumbers={(}{)}], this way it would allow to have the equations in the list of symbols in brackets, while having the page numbers in the index without the brackets.

This may be complicated to implement as xindy and makeindex don't write the numberlists in exactly the same format, but I'll leave this feature request open and see if I can find a way to implement it that will work with either indexing application.

Update 2020-02-29

This is now possible with bib2gls and glossaries-extra.sty's record=nameref option and commands in the form \glsxtrcounterlocfmt, such as \glsxtrequationlocfmt. I don't think it's possible to implement this more generally for other indexing options, but I'm going to close this feature request now that there is actually an option to do this.
