SubjectRe: Dropping a.out support
Date
I may be talking rubbish here (since I know very little about the shared 
library stuff), however would it not be possible to make the kernel's bin
loader for a.out & elf binaries use different implementations of the run
time linker so that you have 2 ld.so programs, one for elf the other for
a.out.

Then you can easily and modularly decide which you support on each
machine, and the 2 can be developed independently

Nigel.
