There should be a better way to do this, but here's one idea...

Have a macro expansion introduce the names, and have the same expansion
export them. Since the expansion introduces the names, they won't bind
in the rest of the module (and therefore won't conflict with other

  (define-syntax provide-safe-scheme
    (syntax-rules ()
	 (require safe-scheme)
	 (provide (all-from safe-scheme)))]))
