  The first thing you need to do is to determine if the two symbols
  really should be the same symbol.  Chances are they should, but that
  one symbol is internal to a package by accident.  If you load and
  execute all your defpackage forms before you load any other files or
  data, this kind of error is unlikely to come up accidentally.

  I agree with everything you say, but I would
  attack to death your right to say it.
