DescriptionIt is a very nice feature that
\newglossaryentries with name which are macros (resp. numbers) are, within the main \print(ed)glossary, grouped (under headings "Symbols" and "Numbers"), at least with some styles.
What could be nice would be to provide "symbol" and "number" options, in the spirit of "acronym" option, in order to let these entries belong to their proper glossary lists and, hence, not the main belong \print(ed)glossary.
I've added these new package options to experimental version 3.11a, but I've used
\printnumbers instead of
\printnumber as it seemed more logical that way (since you're printing a list of numbers/symbols rather than just one).
With regard to the acronyms, if the package option "acronym" is used and option "compatible-3.07" has not been used, the package will define
\printacronyms at the beginning of the document if it isn't already defined. (Otherwise there might be compatibility issues with older documents that use the "acronym" option where the user has defined
\printacronyms as a convenient shortcut.)
I've now uploaded glossaries version 4.0 to CTAN.
