I've tried the lambda trick to hide symbols, it doesn't actually work.
It does work with MSVC, which affects a UUID for each lambda, but with
GCC/Clang the name of a lambda contains the name of the function it is
created in, which also contains the type of the template parameters that
this function takes.
