There are cases in libgcj where a package-private method is actually
used by a native method in a different package.  This is lame, but it
seemed like the most expedient way to solve the problem at the time.

Can we distinguish between these sorts of objects and the dll?  That
is, make the package-private symbols non-public in the dll even though
they are visible outside the object at link time?  It seems like this
must be possible.
