## Description

Multi-paragraph numbered objects, previously defined using `\defineenumeration`. See `\defineenumeration` for more elaborate info.

## Example

\setupwhitespace[big] \defineenumeration[theorem][text=Theorem, location=left] % In mkiv we would write `alternative=left`. \starttheorem This theorem has multiple paragraphs. We can prove this by counting them: we count more than one paragraph, quod erat demonstrandum. \stoptheorem \tex{theorem} can not contain multiple paragraphs: \theorem This theorem has multiple paragraphs. We can prove this by counting them: we count more than one paragraph, quod erat demonstrandum.

This gives:
