These do not exist for the standard library due to its tight relationship with the compiler, but for the moment it is a non-trivial concern for 3rd party code that is performance sensitive.  This is effectively a language pressure in the direction of larger modules, at least for some domains.  (Hopefully this pressure will eventually be alleviated - there has been at least some talk in that direction)

Indeed, I expect that this will be a big focus over the next year.  The resilience model and ABI stability drive the urgency of getting this worked out.
