I was mistaken about this part. It seems that sometimes hex is used and
sometimes decimal is used. When a cons (MIN . MAX) range is mentioned, for
instance, decimal notation is used.

Perhaps, for this part of the bug report, the suggestion should be to just
mention explicitly which number base is being used in the current context.

It's pretty obvious if you see `F' that hex is used, but it is not so obvious
when the digits could be either decimal or hex.
