#' Number Starting at \code{1}
#'
#' JavaScript starts at \code{0}, but R starts at \code{1}.
#' This means unnamed lists and vectors are indexed starting at
#' \code{0} in listviewer widgets.  This little helper function
#' tries to resolve the disconnect by assigning sequential numbers
#' starting at \code{1} to names for unnamed \code{lists} and \code{vectors}.
#' Please note though that using \code{number_unnamed} will potentially
#' cause difficulties serializing back and forth between JavaScript and R.
#'
#' @param l \code{list}
#'
#' @examples
#' library(listviewer)
#' jsonedit(
#'   number_unnamed(list(x=list(letters[1:3])))
#' )
#'
#' @export
