Number2 ([nbx]) is in vanilla since 2001 or so.

Number2 exists because it comes from an external library that was merged 
into vanilla back then.

Number1 still exists because Number2 isn't backwards-compatible with 
Number1 and so can't actually replace it. Number2 couldn't be made 
backwards-compatible anymore because it was already used by those who 
started pd with -lib iemgui.

Actually, a special constructor could have been made for that case, 
similar to how [hradio] and [vradio] also exist as [hdl] and [vdl], but 
there's also a big mismatch of options between Number1 and Number2, such 
that it isn't really easy to merge Number1 and Number2 without making a 
more complicated whole with even more options.
