    (defvar var2 "DOC2")
    (defvaralias 'var1 'var2)

    is doesn't give compiler warnings. Presumably defvaralias is a declaration
    for var1.

In theory, it should warn, but I would rather put that in TODO
and not change it now.

    Yes, you're right and I'm misquoting Stefan. There must be some symmetry,
    however as:

    (defvar var2 "DOC2")
    (defvaralias 'var1 'var2)

That should not warn.  It defines var2 once and var1 once.

    (defvar var1a "DOC1")
    (defvaralias 'var1a 'var2a)

That should warn.  It defines var1a twice.

But this can wait till after the release.
