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...

All done.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
