I think you're missing something.  The '01', '02' type identifiers are only
valid for the life of a single Augeas transaction; in the next Augeas
resource, what you called '01' will just be another number in the regular
sequence (since Augeas has reparsed the file and used it's own sequence
values).  Try it out in augtool, you'll see how it works.
