I'm a little nervous at changing the check to a non target-specific
one without multi-platform testing. Unfortunately, I haven't had
a chance to work on this yet, and I'd really like to have that for 7.2.
Would it be OK for me to commit this change as is while I instrument
what you suggest on all other platforms we have that use COFF? (I'm
expecting to be able to make that change today)
