The core purpose of the dumper is to do a kind of "define functions and
variables" that's faster than loading the corresponding .elc files.

So  all we really need is basically to dump the content of the obarray
and reload it later on (if it's dumped into a C file, then it's like the
reload happens at link time).

So, the problem only appears if there are objects reachable from the
obarray which come from external libraries.
