[LLVMdev] How to create forward reference to BasicBlock?

Can anyone tell me if there's a straighforward way to create a new
BasicBlock without inserting it into a function's basic block list? I want
to do this so I can create a forward reference to a block that's position in
the function is not yet known.
bb = BasicBlock::Create(function,...)
add other blocks to function and build instructions in those blocks
but I get an assert failure from push_back:
t1: SymbolTableListTraitsImpl.h:68: void
ItemParentClass>::addNodeToList(ValueSubClass*) [with ValueSubClass =
llvm::BasicBlock, ItemParentClass = llvm::Function]: Assertion
`V->getParent() == 0 && "Value already in a container!!"' failed.
Should I expect this to work? Can a BasicBlock only exist within a
Function's basic block list? Is there a better way to create a forward
reference for branch instructions to IR code that is not yet generated?
Thanks in advance,
