\def\verbosenumberconnector{--}

so you can define your own connectors. This is not interfaced via
setuphead or setuplangauge or because the converter is not configured
that way (maybe some day but I need to discuss it with Wolfgang because
then we want to solve that for all commands and make the right choice
for keys and so).

Up to you to wikify it.
