Hi Andreas,

In a way, you're right. Scenario 3 isn't a scenario at all, it's really just a tentative solution to Scenario 2.

> Rather do I think that it seems worthwhile to address scenario 2 by making name space merges more liberal. If there is a duplicate declaration of a constant, one could check whether the declarations of the constants are equivalent, and accept if so. Since I am not familiar with the internals, I do not know whether such a change is feasible in the current implementation.

Even if this could be achieved with little code, this sounds scaringly hackish...
