Had a look and it appears very clean.  To your knowledge, are there
any current platforms supporting open source software besides Windows
and Mac OSX which *do not* use elf?  I think the former is coff, but
in any case we have a "roll your own" reloc solution there.  Also some
darwin specific bfd modification code I mentioned earlier for Mac
OSX.  But it would appear the the many other non-elf bfd-supported
target formats are defacto legacy at present.  True?

Take care,
