Yes, but one might hope that when loading the library, one source is
always preferred over the other. With some luck, "My Macros & Dialogs"
will always be preferred to "LibreOffice Macros & Dialogs". But maybe
we are unlucky and it is other way round. (I think in general both
ways make sense, as long as the choice is made consistently; some
scenarios favour "priority to My Macros", other scenarios favour
"priority to LibreOffice". By "luck" I mean "LibreOffice Basic was
designed with the choice that suits our current scenario".)
