Yup, I'll just do that. I'll fix up my patch to be more complete (ie
the a.out-core.h removal Jann pointed out).

I'll talk about removing a.out support entirely in the commit message.
I'd be ok for that to be a total removal, but maybe there are some
architectures that still have that as a "main" format?

Or I could just apply your patch after removing the core-dumping. Comments?
