An example of getName error

Methods in XSSFWorkbook seem to ignore the fact that we can have several XSSFName's with the same name in different scopes.

XSSFWorkbook.getName(String name), XSSFWorkbook.getNameIndex(String name), XSSFWorkbook.removeName(String name), and possibly other methods are affected by this.

In the attachment you can see that getName returns the 1st XSSFName it finds. A better solution would be to return a collection of results.

In r1734863 we have now added a getNames() method to Workbook and its  implementations. We did not remove the existing getName() methods to keep backwards compatibility with existing code.
