But so, the user (and not only the unexperienced one) cannot tell
if he can trust a program deleting "the safe way" without asking for
"ldd <program>", because statically linked binaries would still
unlink the old way. Or would not? Has the binary been linked with
a libc-undelete or with a libc-oldway?
