When testing at the repl, I've used ,m to great effect, and presumably
you could use set-current-module and co. in a similar way.

Alternatively, you could use (@@ (module name) procedure-name) to access
a private function. Maybe with a helper like

(define-syntax-rule (use-privates module proc-name ...)
  (begin (define proc-name (@@ module proc-name)) ...))
