I'm hopeful that this solution, or something like it, will make it into
Emacs!  Thank you for working on this, João.

One minor drawback I see is that the symbol renaming is placed at the
bottom of an Elisp file, while the loading of the library whose symbols
are renamed is (usually) at the top of the file.

Would a macro something like this be feasible, to (require ...) the
library and specify the renamings together?

  (shorthand-require 'magnar-string :with "^s-" :as "magnar-string-")
