[plt-scheme] Swindle question: multiple gf defs with the same name

[Is there a separate list for Swindle discussion?  Or is this the
place for it?]

If two modules have defmethod forms with the same name, but neither
module requires the other, you end up with two gfs with the same name.
Then if you require both modules you get a name clash.  Is there a
usual way of dealing with this?  How is this done in CLOS, or Dylan?
I suppose you could add all the methods of one gf onto the other, or
add all the methods on both to a new gf, but these seem like kludges.
