library part names vs it's unique number

I may have this backwards.
Just starting to look at gdl stuff and was looking at gs page:

http://www.graphisoft.com/ftp/techsupport/documentation/developer_docs/BasicLibraryDoc/11/LibDevGuid...

Where it says:(at 2.2) "Libraries cannot contain elements with identical names, even if these files have different extensions (e.g., tree.gsm, tree.jpg etc.). Such files have to be renamed"

I thought I had read somewhere on this forum that only the number mattered anymore.
Did I get that wrong, or does this page need updating?

Hope you find it useful.
Excellent, Vistasp. I use a similar Google Search on some web site that I maintain and was going to suggest to GS that they use Google Search (oops - two GS's!) ... but I like that you searched multiple sites.

Very helpful.

Thanks,
Karl
