I think you should use the word "zombie" everywhere, rather than 
sometimes calling it "inert" and other times "zombie". My guess this 
would be a simple global search and replace on your patch.

I assume the new object returned is exactly like any other zombie, in 
that if a program manages to ask *it* for a third object, that third one 
is also a zombie?
