Oh yes, sorry that's the function I meant.

That's OK.  All I'm saying is that this is the right place to do removal of
duplicates and that if there are duplicates which are not truly identical,
then the UI has to somehow make the difference visible to the user, so the
code that displays the list should have the necessary info to know whether
to remove the duplicates or not.  I.e. it can always be done in
minibuffer-completion-help or in the equivalent function in your code,
rather than earlier in the completion table.
