Then the proposed solution won't work either...

Just do an xyz.h:

/* Prototype, gets pulled in when called */
void big_ugly_func(int this, void *that);
/* Inline definition, gets nuked */
static inline void big_ugly_func(int this, void *that) {}

while xyz.c goes into a library (*.a) with the full definition. Gets
compiled, but not linked in.

What is wrong with that?
