That's irrelevant. They do actually overload it with macros.

The point is the old functions - the A ones - are kept around but 
simply forward to the new functions - the W ones - after doing 
some compatibility transformations.

That is a viable path for Phobos. The existing std.x functions 
can forward to std.v2.x as appropriate.
