Currently, there is another issue why reuse should be possible: To correct a misspelled person name, the only way is to delete the person object an to immediately recreate ist, reusing the handle. Perhaps a good idea would be, not to issue "used" handles in the AUTO-n process. (Which I thought would not happen, but obviously it does sometimes.) Greetings from Germany, Christian Halbe.
