Thanks to you and Lars for the various suggestions.  I boiled that
down to an actual working example.

I find that

% choose from
% \newenvironment{swpostable}{\begin{table[p]}}{\end{table}}

fails with this error:

! LaTeX Error: Environment table[h] undefined.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help.
l.98 \begin{swpostable}
! Emergency stop.

I've attached a complete functioning example.
