If I have a module which is built from multiple source files each of
which define functions and variables, it would be nice for
find-lisp-object-file-name and/or symbol-file to return the actual file
that each function and variable was defined in.  That way
help-view-source works.

It doesn't seem like this is possible currently.

It used to be possible by manually adding entries to load-history inside
the module which corresponded to each function loaded.  But bug#30164
added proper load-history entries for modules, which shadow these, so
this doesn't work anymore.  Still, we still do this in

What's the Right Way to tell Emacs about the association between source
files making up a module, and the functions defined by that module?
