There are ways to fix this one: we can allow to register a given command a
second time, which then replaces the previously registered command. We can also
allow this only for the common node commands.

Should I implement this? Then upon new release, all potential VTY users out
there can still register their own common node commands to replace the default
ones and should not experience breakage.
