Just to clarify this, he means that in the sense that exporting all
but a few of the symbols from a module is difficult, not in the sense
that each thing is individually hard to export. :)  The problem is
that unless you export everything, you are forced to list all exports
explicitly, so there's no way to tell it just the few things you're
hiding (though that should not be a difficult extension).
