For importing, all you have is name + type anyway.
The question is: is there an easy scheme that allows you to compute the
name of the symbol from that information?

If there isn't, I suppose the current approach of aliasing is suitable.
Personally, I only use C functions in my ABI, but if we ever wanted to
make this standard-proof, it would need to have no such restrictions.
