       * Foo: (foo)bar.     The GNU Foo program.
       * Foo: (foo)baz.  The One and Only GNU FooBar program.

No, these definitely should not be merged, IMHO.  bar != baz.

I agree, probably not to merge
* Foo: (foo)bar.
* Foobar: (foo)bar.

However, I think these can be merged:
* Foo: (foo)bar.   GNU Foo.
* Foo: (foo)bar.   The one and only GNU Foo.
where only the commentary differs.  It's a judgement call, but personally I
think having one menu entry is better in this case, because it's fewer
entries in the dir file.  Most likely one or the other them will be the
older commentary, so why bother having it?

Finally, the most important (and most common) thing to merge would be
when everything is exactly the same:
* Foo: (foo)bar.   GNU Foo.
* Foo: (foo)bar.   GNU Foo.

That is the case that instigated the whole discussion.
