Alan raised some concerns offline that we should try to reduce the
number of qualified exports, not adding more, and that it might be
better to accept some code duplication here. Thus I'm proposing this as
an alternative:


Neither solution is exactly pretty, but this approach removes any
performance risk of jdk.01 and by at least calling out that there's
some duplication around should avoid us slipping back into a similar
situation again.
