Actually that'd probably be a great idea.  The "best thing" to do would 
probably be somehow alter smoke to read in the various K*_EXPORT macros and 
automatically apply them to the generated source, and then that way perhaps 
we'd be able to use -fvisibility=hidden on the command line for a smaller lib 
size (and I'd assume a much quicker link time).

I'm not really an expert either though, we should probably wait until Thiago 
tells us whether we're crazy or not. ;)
