Agreed. There has to be a really good reason to sacrifice the support
for these environments. Yes, atexit won't perform 100% correct, but
at least it works in the main executable which is all you can do with
HJ, why should we care whether atexit takes a handful more cycles to
execute? What other reasons are there?
