HIDE=no as default is a bad thing.  I don't care personally, but people
using shared modules--and that should move towards the norm in 1.3--will
care a lot.  

HIDE=yes makes sense and, as Dean suggested, the option to disable it
should be made less obvious.  If peple want to disable it for their own
use while debugging or whatever, that is easy.

The only way to avoid the binary API conflicts is default HIDE=yes.
