Not in the GNU binutils, but it has other linkers.

Medium. It sounds like a nice feature, although I wonder how many
people would actually want it. My main concern though would be the
probability that support for this feature would introduce new bugs into
the linker, especially in areas not connected with the feature. A well
implemented patch with a good testsuite would go a long way to relieving
those concerns however...
