Puzzle -- self-describing sentences () Larry Barrett

I can get a solution pretty easily, up to a point, by filling in the entry for 0, then starting at the end and working backward, skipping the entry for 1 until all others are filled in, like this:

In this sentence, the number of occurrences of ...

0 is 1, 1 is _, 2 is 1.

then fill in the entry for 1: ... 0 is 1, 1 is 3, 2 is 1.

This works up thru 8:

... 0 is 1, 1 is _, 2 is 1, 3 is 1, 4 is 1, 5 is 1, 6 is 1, 7 is 1, 8 is 1. And then fill in the entry for 1:

... 0 is 1, 1 is 9, 2 is 1, 3 is 1, 4 is 1, 5 is 1, 6 is 1, 7 is 1, 8 is 1.

But when 9 is added at the end, the entry for 1 becomes 10, and this scheme falls apart.
