This is real life with critical editions in the "classical" style
where footnotes don't refer by footnote marks but by line numbers.
ednotes.sty originally used three labels for one footnote
and broke with, say, 400 pages. Well, the problem was the number
of strings already, but you see that so many labels are what
some people really need. I changed the label-testing to use only
one label per note, but it is not very stable. Think of a volume of
500 pages (I am working at something like that) and that ten notes
per page are not unusual ...
