When an object is removed it leaves a gap in the Soup. Other
objects do not move to fill the gap.
to the object which was removed are not updated. This means you can
remove one object and replace it with a substitute. Other
IndirectObjects in the Soup will then refer to the new object
rather than the old one.
However it also means that you should be careful about removing
an object and not replacing it. Because the slot is free it may be
re-used and any references which exist may then point to a new -
inappropriate - object.
