Hmm, I agree that we should plan for the possibility of finding all
the names of an object, but I would expect that the primary or basic
name of an object is quite cheap to keep track of, while finding all
names is signifacantly more expensive.  When we only have a way to
return all names, we allways need to find them all, even when the user
is only going to use the first one in the list.
