I think there's another good reason to do this -- you may not have been in
HIS log the first time (pileup error or something), and if not, and he
sends his log in, that QSO won't count.  If you fake the serial number the
second time, you could lose both QSOs.

I suggest everyone just accept dupes as overhead and move on.
