There is very marginal benefit in reducing the number of symbols in a
shared lib, but definite costs in increasing the number of shared libs.
Please end that thread. There are 2^n-2 ways to choose a nontrivial
subset of n symbols and for any subset there will be someone that want
it in a separate lib. It's not going to happen. Any further discussion
will be just noise.
