Hi . Noted that in 1.9.x the "--export-all" parameter has been removed
from creating shared libraries for extensions, presumably to try and
not "pollute as much" the link space [1]

However this requires *all* authors who want their gems to compile on
windows to add this rather ugly, non-intuitive block:

 #if defined(_WIN32)
__declspec(dllexport)
 #endif

 void init_LibName() {}

Is this anticipated and/or desired?
Thanks.
