Can we please do the same for the source code? It's rather hard to have
the dependencies right with files scattered all around, and far more 
easier and clear to be able to grep all usages of a routine in an uniq 
file (changing names would be easier too thus allowing more agressive
changes to the API). Not to mention that for the kernel, this would 
allow to not need a linker thus simplifying greatly the compilation
