    not to mention penalizing users who bought commercial a.out software.
    there is no reason to expect that if linux drops a.out support in future
    kernels, that vendors will have any motivation to provide free elf
    upgrades to their a.out customers. i fully expect that users will just
    have to buy elf versions. that in itself will keep a lot of people from
    upgrading to newer kernels.
