It actually occurs to me that it might be better to keep the skip list and
maybe expand it. There are vast numbers of places where people write
open() or whatever(), and there is no point in even trying to
cross-reference them. I should do some tests, it might even make a
measurable difference in the build time to skip them :) And in any case,
somebody is bound to put one of those common names into the namespace in
the future, recreating the current problem.
