You could write out the backup function you need under a different name.
Then have the backup symbol at the end of the link call the new name of
the backup function.
I agree that this kind of approach is less convenient, but this doesn't
seem like a persuasive choice for one of the two remaining OS-dependent
symbol binding numbers. Perhaps you should try to sell this idea to the
ELF ABI, the generic space has seven available numbers.
