Yup, given that we can't easily forecast which symbols will wind up in
the linked product without actually linking it, this isn't easy,
unless we want to start hacking in more magic with a custom strip

All things considered, I thought your initial recommendation was
closest to ideal, short of getting rebuilds of those libraries.  I've
put a patch to implement this for the GYP-based Mac build (currently
only used by Chromium) at
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30590 .
