Don't know what you mean with multi-units VMT. A Class/Object/VMT is
defined only in a single unit.

I don't think that is possible. What to do with the index numbering across

That is possible. It needs a new ppuentry that will contain the following
items per export:

- procdef reference
- exported name
- exported index
