Well, the compiler also reserves funny identifiers: There are
predefined defines (__i386__), and reserved library names
(__cp_push_exception), which can't be used by the system library.

Since the library has to be aware of these issues anyway, I don't feel
it is too much to ask for the library also avoiding __opr.

Of course, the failure mode might be somewhat inappropriate.
