It's handled well, the algorithm does not in the least care that the 
numbers are sequential so long as they sort properly.

In fact, just to make it easy to insert new values later without 
renumbering the best practice is probably to use larger increments, e.g. 
src5, src10, src15... Anyone who's ever had to code using GOTO <LINE> 
will be intimately familiar with what I mean.

I wonder if Image.src should reflect the winning candidate (and if we 
should trigger an event when that changes).
