[SG15] Modularization of the standard library and ABI stability

Do we have any ABI stability concerns regarding modularizing the standard
library? Certainly for strong module ownership implementations, this is a
concern, but for weak module ownership implementations it may be a concern
too, because the mangling of internal implementation details with module
linkage would change.

Can implementations overcome this with special hacks for the standard
library that preserve the old mangled names?
