irritating compiler warnings

Consider this simple example:
(defvar foo1 *menu* ...)
(defobfun (menu-update foo1) () ... (usual-menu-update))
(defvar foo2 *menu* ...)
(defobfun (menu-update foo2) () ... (usual-menu-update))
All I'm doing is creating two different menus each with its own
specialized menu-update function. However, the compiler flags me with
the warning that menu-update is being re-defined in a different file.
Now its just a warning, but I like to keep my warning flags set and the
message is irritating to others who use my code.
Does anyone know if there is a good way to avoid these warnings. Are these
warnings bugs to be fixed or is there a legit reason for them?
I know of two (ugly) work arounds:
1) I can create a class for each menu using defobject. Using
defobfun on different classes won't flag any warnings.
2) I can use fhave to install functions. However, this really
doesn't work in the above example because usual-menu-update
only work from withing a defobfun. So this method is ok as
long as you don't need any usual-... calls.
