yeah, that'd be it exactly...part of the problem with object names at 
present is they don't allow spaces, and are limited in length, as well 
as can't be duplicated, which clutters things up at times, having extra 
numbers associated with sub-parts of complex CSGs that you aren't so 
much concerned what it is part of, and only care about what its function 
in the CSG is...so I might have a bunch of 'rounded edge' CSG 
differences which are composed of a cylinder differenced from a cube, 
which I then difference from the parent, and I don't particularly care 
about the rounding beyond the fact that it's a rounding-CSG, and don't 
even need to have a number with it.
