[PD] [clone]'s instance number

Hah, great that this feature exists already! I'm happy using $1 and renumbering other creation arguments accordingly. Putting at the end would seem a little confusing, since it would be a different number each time.

This could be used to achieve differentiation between the abstractions, ie. if the abstraction contains "tabread4~ $-1.array" and the $-1 is replaced with the instance number, then each instance could read a different file. Of course there are other ways of doing this, but it would be neat to do it with clone, and I'm wondering if there's a way.
