For TeX Live, Fabrice and I run sanity checks on the texmf
tree and find duplicate names in tex// and fonts//. The ones in tex are
sorted out manually. Removing duplicates in source and doc seems (to my
mind) like unnecessary interference - if 67 people all have  a file
called "test.tex", I don't want to censor it! People who have multiple
files called "Makefile", I can only applaud.
