This section of the tutorial seems to say that to add an "update" view to the helloworld component a new entry point file must be created with the same name as the view ("updhelloworld.php" in that example). I think this is wrong because: 1) I can delete this file and the example component still works 2) None of the other components have this structure (eg com_users just has a switch in the main controller's display to select different displays based on view name) 3) A "die()" in that file never gets executed.

Note that "helloworld.php" (without the "upd" prefix) was created as the entry point back in part 2.
