But the thing that requires the comment is the "2", not the "print" or the
"cells". And that comes to a more common issue: any number other than 0 or
1 in code most likely needs a comment (that comment could be merely a
variable name). Values of 0 or 1 may need a comment, but there are plenty
of cases where they are used quite clearly - its much less likely that
other numbers have obvious meaning.
