Peter already mentioned why that isn't necessary.  I just want to add
a caution to folks out there.  Don't go wild with weak symbols.  Think
VERY carefully (and get a review) before using them.  They should
be treated as an absolute last resort.  You can paint yourself into
a corner before you know it, and you won't find out until it's time
to upgrade something and you suddenly realize that none of your old
executables will run any more.
