    Things are pretty screwed up right now, with three catalogue numbers
    assigned to two different objects each:
    31491 is both 2007-019B and 1999-025BWE
    31492 is both 2007-019C and 1999-025BWF
    31493 is both 2007-019D and 1999-025BWG
    The TLEs are also markedly different.
    Thereafter, things settle down, with 31494-31570 being 1999-025BWH
    through 1999-025BZM. Wonder what will happen with those three oddball
    entries. Getting close to 1999-025CAA(!). Yikes.
