It seems to be a reasonable expectation that the caller can tell if
the add was "already there and was a no-op", judging from what we
saw in the shortlog code, which was the first audience the API was
introduced to support.  It seems to benefit from it if it were
available, and has to work around the lack of it with check_dup()
wrapper.
