[Nmh-workers] relative message numbers?

i know ('man nmh') about 'cur:-3' and 'prev:3', which will pick
the 3 previous messages (including cur, or not).  is there a way to
refer to _just_ the Nth message before or after cur?

i often look at a scan listing and realize i want to see a message
that's very close to 'cur' or 'last'.  with my numeric typing skills,
the fewer digits i need to type the better, so "show last--3" or "show
cur++2" would be easier than "show 321540".  (a real example, from my
mairix "virtual" output folder).

is this possible?  anyone else think it's desirable?
