Right. I just wasn't sure if you had in mind some more complicated
definition of when a by-name search does or doesn't reach this objfile.
If it's literally no change to the search algorithm, that's fine.
My concern was to keep an eye out for any subtleties such as "find the
first match of what's already interned" code that works now because
everything is interned first, vs cases where it could appear to work
because enough was interned to get some answer and mask the info it would
get by interning lazy files.
