[WriteLog] CW number setup

The writelog.ini file REALLY needs to come with ALL options already 
listed (and with those not wanted in the standard installation 
commented out). If they were there, it would be pretty easy for a guy 
to change the comment status to enable them. Otherwise, he often has 
to guess about proper format and make repeated attempts to discover 
how to make it work. Don't ask how I discovered this wisdom.

Ed, search the help files - you might possibly discover the exact 
format for this command. I am not sure if order is important in the 
ini file - probably not. I am not sure if a [cut-number] header is 
important either. Just do what the rest of us do - guess and try.
