ns# 102 and 103 are next in line, but a comment in the config seems to recommend reserving them for a "WikiProject:" namespace. 104 and 105 equally for a "Reference" ns; and enwiki briefly had a "Table:" ns at 106 and 107. So I think these should probably be at 108 and 109:

'wgExtraNamespaces' => array(

'enwiki' => array( 
    100 => 'Portal', 
    101 => 'Portal_talk',
    #106 => 'Table',
    #107 => 'Table_talk',
    108 => 'Book',
    109 => 'Book_talk',

There's only one page on enwiki currently at "Book:Foo", a redirect with no links. Might not even need to run the cleanup script; I can delete that redirect if it would help...
