Oh; I must have missed that bit. I could probably live with that
on a regular running system. However, it sounds to me like it might
cause problems with the install, where the kernel is already quite
large and there is no swap space. But presumably we'd just have a
NOSYMTABLOAD option or whatever that would take care of this problem.
