This doesn't work if both modules can be loaded at the same time in
theory.  You'll get symbol crashes.  To avoid this, make all functions
static and include from both, or make it a library module.

Also, avoid symbols like __xxx() as much as possible.  These are
basically for compiler internals, so this might have problems in the
future version of compiler.

Otherise the code look fine, so far.

Well, I feel we can work better on this after 1.0.15.  RC standas for
release-candiate, after all :)
