    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.
