Hi Kevin,

Please, do read the thread on `bug-gnulib'.  Widespread libraries
already fixed the problem, the most straightforward solution being to
use Libtool's `-export-symbols-regex' link option (which is a single
line in `').

Did you actually hit a problem?

Honestly, I'd prefer not to revert it (remember it's only in HEAD) if
the rationale is "we're too lazy to fix it".

And while we're at it, I suggest that we do "mv libguile/*.[ch] .".
Subdirs like that are unnecessary, too.  :-)

Please, provide a more compelling rationale.  Did you find a bug or
something?  I don't see the point in having all files mixed up.

This is unrelated to Gnulib, BTW.

Hmm, I did not move the licence in `NEWS', though I did remove a few
lines from there [0].  Is this what you are referring to?
