Description

If you rename a core Var, you will get a warning if you redefine it. It is as if the :rename doesn't imply :exclude.

Repro with QuickStart JAR:

$ java -jar cljs.jar -m cljs.repl.node
ClojureScript Node.js REPL server listening on 52319
To quit, type: :cljs/quit
cljs.user=> (ns foo.core (:refer-clojure :rename {map clj-map}))
nil
foo.core=> (map inc [1 2])
(2 3)
foo.core=> (def map {:a :b})
WARNING: map already refers to: cljs.core/map being replaced by: foo.core/map at line 1 <cljs repl>
#'foo.core/map
foo.core=> map
{:a :b}
foo.core=> (clj-map inc [1 2])
(2 3)

Compare to Clojure:

user=> (ns foo.core (:refer-clojure :rename {map clj-map}))
nil
foo.core=> (map inc [1 2])

CompilerException java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to resolve symbol: map in this context, compiling:(/private/var/folders/gx/nymj3l7x4zq3gxb97v2zwzb40000gn/T/form-init8370940485091648461.clj:1:1)
foo.core=> (def map {:a :b})
#'foo.core/map
foo.core=> map
{:a :b}
foo.core=> (clj-map inc [1 2])
(2 3)

Note that you cannot workaround this by simply adding an explicit :exclude for map above. While this works with the current ClojureScript compiler, it breaks in Clojure, making the alias symbol clj-map unresolvable.
