Strange, I tried \defineitemgroup[myitm][levels=11] in MKII but still I get "currently no more than 6 levels in itemizations". Levels do not seem to work anymore.

> \maxitemdepth is a real counter and \setcounter won’t work here. The only thing you can do is to ask Hans to implement the “levels” key in MkIV. What you have to know is that this key is only used when you define a new list with \defineitemgroup, for a already existing group like “itemize” you can increase the depth.

OK. What I don't understand is why is there a hardcoded limit? The indentation of depth greater than 6 is working all right only the symbols are kept constant (\definesymbol[6]) for all depth > 6.
