Good point. I'm adding a macro _GL_CXXALIASWARN, so that a warning will
be emitted:

  foo.cc: In function ‘int main()’:
  foo.cc:21: warning: call to ‘open’ declared with attribute warning: The 
symbol ::open refers to the system function. Use gnulib::open instead.

You can try it. But I doubt that you will get to a portable solution
this way, because of differences between various C++ compilers.
