		<para>
			Define a new counter that can be used from the script.
			The declaration might include a group in front of the counter
			name, separated with '.'. It might also include a counter
			description string (help message), separated from the name
			with a ' ' or  ':'.
			If the group is missing, the group defined in the
			<varname>script_cnt_grp_name</varname> module parameter will
			be used (the default is "script").
			If the description is missing, the default is
			"custom script counter".
			The format of the declaration is: [group.]name[( |:)description].
