As far as I know, they're different things.  My code was specifically
testing CL stuff, even if it would be present at runtime, whereas
Stefan's would check for problems with functions not being available
at runtime generally.  (It never seemed to warn me usefully anyway,
but presumably that was because it was buggy.)

That's only a few that are aliases and would otherwise escape.
