If it bothers you, the source is available to you to fix it. :-)
But I looked at some of these before. The multiple definitions are
mostly the same, but differ in subtle ways. It's difficult to tell
which is the correct one, if any. Maybe no single definition will
work, so a merged implementation is needed.
That's my excuse anyway for not fixing these.
