Because the number of stanzas automagically generated can change. Thus,
I've only one kernel, alternate set to true as well as memtest. This
means that my windows stanza, if I had one which I haven't, would be
number 3 (indexing start at 0 IIRC). If I had a kernel, I must remember
to also change the number, as now it should be 6 (two kernels with
alternate give 4 stanzas, plus the one related to memtest). The only one
which always has the same number is stanza 0, i.e. the first one.
