	Sounds good to me; it's rather a pain editing patches, particularly
separate ones. I've been polishing the combination of -Bdirect,
-hashvals, -zdynsort as separate patches; but that makes cross-patch
optimizations rather tough. eg. there are some nice wins possible from
combining dynsort with -Bdirect to ensure named relocations walk the
specified target library's hash linearly.

	Anyhow - I guess I'm covered by Novell's blanket copyright assignment
for this sort of work; it'd be great to get it into cvs.
