Yeah, but we are still supporting some not-so-modern platforms. In any
case, to go this route we would have to figure out how to make symbol
versioning work on *every* supported platform, not only the easy ones.
That might be a good long-term goal but I don't want to buy into making
it happen for 8.3.
