Allright, I just registered as gmerlin.
I also subscribed to libcdio-devel so others can take part in our
conversations :-)

For example
get_drive_cap_mmc of lib/driver is used by a number of the drivers but
I guess for now it's not useful outside of the library.

Ahh, ok that makes sense. I was just curious.

My approach is to prefix all public symbols
(e.g. get_drive_cap_mmc -> cdio_get_drive_cap_mmc) and make a strict
separation of public and private header files. I have, of course, tons
of public symbols, which should never be accessed from outside.

Having one executable linked with multiple versions of the same lib
(directly or via dynamic modules) is almost always doomed to
failure. I doubt that making a bunch of functions local will help
a lot here :)
