Um, do we?

I was looking at this from the perspective that O'Reilly seem to be 
accepting any sane scheme, and stating that they will slap an autogenerated 
scheme on anything which they deem to be insane.

So, as long as our scheme is sane, we should be OK?

Basically, I'm thinking that section numbers absolutely *are* going to 
change, and chapters might too, so we had must adopt a scheme that doesn't 
break when that happens.
