This quesiton is unrelated to your uid/passwd change.
Do you really want a function that is marked as "internal to..." to
have a weak alias? I may not fully understand the purpose of this,
but I thoght it was to allow us to provide a function but allow it to
be overridden at link time.
If it is a purely internal function (not part of whatever API the
hesiod resolving code uses) should it be something other than
I guess the main question is when should there be a weak alias, and
when should there not be one?
