"With no error messages, or even with no changes to the program since 1
and a half year in the repository, the scientific calculations are now
all blown up, and program outputs only errors at runtime. The maintainer
now curses and chases me for having the nerve to leave a program
known as working in such a horrible mess in the repository."

Never tested, but doesnt the compiler warn of the colision ? if not, it should.

Usually i prefix my symbols with some meaningfull prefixes to avoid
collision. I never have two symbols with the same name and i hardly
used unit prefixes in the past.

But a collision warning from the compiler would be helpfull.
