Can't do that and preserve the abi, also, there is no concept in gcc
currently to so name it, and what's worse, in general, it is just
impossible given how people use gcc. You'd require that the decision
of which shared library a compilation unit is to go into be fixed
before compilation, currently, that isn't so required.
All in all, we should just agree to not worry about non-merged
typeinfo name, or remove support for it.
