Okay, that sounds like a sane option as well. I'll see if I can
introduce a different set of headers for the external-linking case and
make the 0.8-style header includes default to header-only mode. That
should reduce the breakage for people upgrading from 0.8 to 0.9.

Thanks again for pointing that out Steven, it's feedback most appreciated.
