Is there any chance that you and the sourceware guys could get together and
work on a single, unified binutils (which just happens to support Linux)?.

The current situation seems to involve duplication of effort and causes
confusion. It sounds a little like the split in gcc/egcs development, which
thankfully is now resolved. Could we do the same for binutils?
