  (Without having actually specced out the implementation yet,) I don't see
why we couldn't do this trick entirely in ld, with a support routine or two in
libgcc.  It can't go entirely into libtool, I would have thought; it requires
some additional code at runtime.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
