I just noticed that the comment in Part 2 has this in the other order.
My thought was that if there were any problem creating the named
references, the namespace should not get populated, but when it came
to making it all work the other order was more natural.  Can anyone
think of a way it's likely to go wrong?  (Is anyone [else] interested
enough for me to bother?)
