Actually, I think that Paul submitted the --export-all-symbols patch to
binutils for approval, where it has languished for a while.

He specifically did not include the auto-import stuff.  I don't remember
if the auto-import patch also included export-all-symbols but I don't
believe that the  converse is true.
