It is more about code separation and readability rather than compiler
optimizations, optimally i want to have a file(s) that will include all
IB stuff and compile out  directly from Makefile, of course we still
need stub functions in a header file which will yield the same
compilation test matrix, but code readability and separation will
become more clear.
