After some discussion, we think Alessandro's arguments about keeping
EXPORT_SYMBOL are sound. As mentioned, CERN policies are
non-restrictive in this sense, hence we consider correct to leave
EXPORT_SYMBOLs as they are currently. The BSD licencing for
the other, "public domain" examples is also OK.

Hope this helps,
