thanks for clearing that up, so these methods are actually not meant to be
exported on Windows and OSX?
Some of the ALTREP methods that now use 'attribute_hidden' would be very
useful to packages that aim to be ALTREP aware, should the currently
(exported) API be considered final?
thanks for your time & best,
