CTAN has a new package: easylist
This package allows you to create lists of numbered items (like Wittgenstein's 'Tractatus') with a single active character as the only command. The appearance of the list may be controlled thanks to various parameters.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/easylist . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/easylist (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

easylist – Lists using a single active character
This package allows you to create lists of numbered items (as in Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus’) with a single active character as the only command. A variety of parameters are available to configure the appearance of the list; lists may be nested (effectively to unlimited depth).
