Thanks, though, I meant, binary incompatibility between binaries
built with a pre-patched binutils, a post-patched binutils (but I
think there's no problem there as these are symbols only supposed to
be referenced across images?), and, and C code that accesses
those __imp_'s directly needing adjustment (mingw's headers have a
few of those, IIRC).
