I have a pretty good idea of existing modules as they stand now, not all, but a
fair proportion, and would be interested in helping with this. When I read the
first e-mail in this thread I immediately thought of a "duplicated module hall
of shame" (possibly with a nicer title) wiki in the contributed module status
group or similar, to serve as a reference point for people to avoid yet another
duplicate. I can think of at least 3 candidate sets of module for this already.
