You missed the point

How dare you be this dismissive of *anyone's* work without an alternative to offer? Especially
on that flimsiest of pretexts, ideology?

You want something done *your* way, do it yourself. Otherwise, take what you're offered.
Telling someone that they have to junk what they've done is bad enough when they're only as
far as having it working; when they're handily trouncing what they aim to replace, telling
them that their replacement isn't "good enough" - because their choice of implementation
language doesn't satisfy *your aesthetic tastes* - only exposes *you* as the fool you are.

(Unfortunately, yours is the voice of the majority, and humanity is doomed.)

The way I read it, sylware did offer an alternative: classic binutils 'ld'. He says even as slow as it is, it's better because of the C++ issue.

Surely you don't mean that. We all take a third option all the time: do without.

Doing without a linker? Neat trick! ;}

Doing without is a subclass of doing it yourself.
