Since we recently created the #2 library, we really want to minimise
possible {ab,}use and hide all the non-API from the exports.

For the long term, I think that we really want to go with the ideas in
the libICE thread:
 - add _X_EXPORT notation for Windows (Cygwin, Mingw, MSVC)
 - fold the following (and more) into a m4 macro shipped xorg-macros.
and use the one-liner (almost) everywhere.
