Is it really a good idea to say that objects have names? Isn't it cleaner 
to describe objects without any reference to names or variables or 
whatnot, then introduce names, namespaces and references as tools for 
working with objects? You go on to explain this clearly, but it's a bit of 
a confusing way to start!

replying to - the original, i'm afraid, is an ex-message.

It is a laborious madness, and an impoverishing one, the madness of
composing vast books. -- Jorge Luis Borges
