Is it possible to overload symbols in static libraries?

Hello All,

I have created a static library in libgloss.a, which by default dumps
the input/output to console I/O.
I also have an UART library. Now to dump the output to UART, i thought
of overloading the console I/O functions (having them as weak
symbols). But it seems that it doesn't work with archives.

The solution that i can think of for now is:
1. Have separate libraries for console I/O and UART.
2. Link them with libgloss.a

Is there any better alternative?
