Why are all object file names prefixed with lib_a-?

In the newlib library, all the object file names are changed, and are prefixed 
with lib_a-
Like strlen() becomes lib_a-strlen.o
Why is this?
It is not that he lib_a- prefix makes much sense to anyone, or does it?
Why can't the object file be called plain strlen.o, for strlen() etc?
