That's it - thank you.

I seem to be getting caught out by the 'fine print' trying to create 
objects.  I presumed zapi.createObject and zapi.add would take care of 
the details, but I don't think this is the case (yet)?  Currently I 
follow a quite explicit recipe along the lines...

     ob = factory(..)
     return ob

     chooseAndCheckName(name, ob, container)
     checkConstraintsFor(ob, container, name)
     container[name] = ob
     return container[name] # or return ob if IContained
