I'm getting smacked by this problem right now. I try to add a new
section, and then have to renumber all the subsequent sibling sections.
And then I worry about xref's that are now pointing to valid -- but
incorrect -- section numbers.
We really should give our sections id's that are descriptive, like
"ch-4-using-branches", rather than "ch-4-sect-2.3", so that we have
some freedom to rearrange sections, insert new ones, etc.
