I don't think that would do what you want, because `all-from-except'
re-exports using the local names, not the original names.

You can write

  (provide (rename a.X X)
           (rename a.Y Y)

It's a bit clumsy to have to repeat `rename', `a.', and the original
name, so you can define a macro that lets you write something like

  (re-provide-prefixless a. X Y ....)
