Please don't do this.  It's error-prone.  Those are machine-readable
numbers, not human-readable ones.  Use the human-readable ones: for

default-preference-list TWOFISH 3DES SHA256 SHA224 RIPEMD160

... will set both digest and cipher preferences.  You can also set
compress prefs in that line, too.

Also, default-preference-list is redundant with the other -preferences.
