In this scenario, we have always gone with "what does UNIX do?"  I think it
is pretty likely that the main users of this code will be existing programs
which expect not to have to look in other libraries to find Sys V shm and
semaphores.  So, putting the exports in some other library will result in
configury changes for existing programs which is something that cygwin
tries to avoid.
