The tree shakers usually have some type of configuration that allows
the developer to specify what is needed (since that isn't determinable
from the code directly).  They usually have various options, from
eliminating symbol names entirely, to giving a list of symbols from
common-lisp that the application expects to need, to pulling in all of

They're usually a good bit of work to implement, and kind of a major
feature of the implementations that have them.
