Of course for components that were upgraded for OS3.5/3.9 (V44/45) these wouldn't be replaced with V41/V42 components. I'm only talking about those OS3.1 components (V40) that were unchanged in OS3.5/3.9 (which is not many, contrary to myth).
For example, to take the first 3 from gulliver's list:
OS3.9 Clock is 40.1 (25/8/93), this could be replaced with clock 42.1 (4.2.94)
OS3.9 locale.library is 44.6 (7/11/99), so wouldn't replace it with locale.library 42.1 (23.8.93)
OS3.9 iffparse.library is 40.1 (9/2/93), this could be replaced with iffparse.library 42.2 (16.8.93)
