In this case, the beauty of the code is not the issue, unfortunately. 
FBC is ugly and hackish, and that's just how we have to handle it.
It doesn't matter that this is specific to this compiler, because this 
linking issue only exists in this current version of the library. We 
don't need to export those symbols when we intend to break binary
