IIRC there allegedly exist platforms where separate compilation doesn't work right? I'm happy to get rid of it if no one speaks up to defend such platforms, though, we can always add it back later. One case was for statically linking numpy into the interpreter, but I'm skeptical about how much we should care about that case, since that's already a hacky kind of process and there are simple alternative hacks that could be used to strip the offending symbols.

Depends on how much it lets us simplify things, I guess. Would we get to remove all the no-export attributes on everything?

Hi All,

Just to raise the question if these two options should be removed at some point? The current default value for both is 0, so we have separate compilation and relaxed strides checking by default.

Oops, default value is 1, not 0.
