Yes, this is just a workaround, so I'd not like to go for it.

This seems to be the proper solution and easy to do. Is there a special
naming convention and location for modules that are private to apps?

Right. But also none of them seems to include the .inl file. Could the
libinline maintainers please comment on whether this file (and others
generated by libinline) is/are needed? The perldoc does not really
clarify it from a distribution point of view for me. libogg-v-h-p seems
to work well without them.

Best regards
