I'd like to focus this issue; it has been open long enough, and deserves to get
closed once the original issue is resolved - which was that "make smelly"
reports symbols. I think dmalcolm's patch is quite a good start for that.
It may well be that other modules need to be considered - but PLEASE not in
this issue. For Unix with shared libraries, the extension modules certainly
cause problems, in particular if Python gets embedded in a context (e.g.
Apache) that also loads separate copies of the same libraries, and may cause
problems if one of our functions collide with some library. However, I see
*two* issues falling out of this: one to extend the "make smelly" target to
include extension modules, and the other to then fix the extension modules -
preferably with one issue per extension module.
