Sure, you guys do what you want. ;)

But the "DUP" is a general issue, and we had to address it.

For the record: A "DUP" exception might still arise in odd cases where two theories independently register ctr sugar for the same type in a different way and then merge. Perhaps we should simply do like others do, namely "Symtab.merge (K true)", in which case the "canonical" order of imports decides who wins.

This is one reason why I'm slightly attacted to the possibility of having several ctr sugar records. On the other hand, some applications might not be able to cope with this gracefully and will have to pick a winner anyway...
