Please don't.  It's been a long time ago, so I don't remember clearly,
but I recall a situation where a package defined a "standard" function
that later caused trouble because it was not quite compatible to the
"real" standard function (which appeared in Emacs after the package
was written).

When the standard function is later added to Emacs, you can always use
defalias on your side to avoid defining a second function.
