maybe, symbol visibility means you can hide C++ symbols in shared libraries. 
i.e. private symbols are hidden from users of the library.

nothing interesting for us. There is a visibility patch for 3.4 and gentoo has 
it. Visibility is being properly included in 3.5.

PyKDE wanting symbols that kdelibs doesn't export anymore.  Some of them were 
things that had to be fixed in kdelibs (i.e. bugs), others are cases where 
PyKDE binds private classes etc. I'm hoping that I've fixed all of them now, 
but it is hard to tell...
