Add index numbers to My Tasks sections (for keyboard shortcuts)

My Tasks was updated to be more customizable. After one year, I have an idea to use it more easily.

When we want to move tasks to a different section in My Tasks, we can use keyboard shortcuts.
That was previously Tab+Y (TodaY), Tab+U (Upcoming), and Tab+L (Later).
Now we can use Tab+1 to Tab+9 shortcuts. Keyboard Shortcut to Move a task to a specific section - #10

When I want to move tasks to “Later”, I was always counting “1, 2, 3, 4” before pressing the keys. That feels unproductive despite the name “shortcuts” :thinking:
Recently I came up with the idea of adding index numbers to the section names, so now I immediately know which key to press!

This method would be helpful if you have many sections in My Tasks but not so many tasks visible (e.g. you collapse unused sections).
