Comment(by duncan):

 Have we looked into whether we can avoid exporting so many symbols by
 hiding all package-internal symbols. My intuition is that there must be
 lots of them that are only needed for intra-package linkage and are not
 needed in the external interface. The only symbols that should need to be
 external are the ones for things accessable via the .hi files of the
 exposed modules. Though if basically every module is exposed then that
 would not help much.
