Little things that matter in language design
What about optimizations - will the new linker be capable of doing all the optimizations that
GNU LD does?

I wasn't sure about what optimizations GNU LD does - only that there was a documented -O
switch to tell it to optimize which warns that it takes a lot of time to optimize. So I
assumed it must be doing significant optimizations.
Got to check out on the possible linker optimizations - interesting exercise. (Someone from
Sun claimed gld does not do half the optimizations that the Sun Linker does - may be specific
