I often see discussions like this and I also recall reading some emails
about alternatives formats already in progress (sorry I can't find now).
(Without really knowing much about this ...) are there proposals already
written for an alternative to ELF?
Something new but already used elsewhere? Or to be invented/implemented at
Or something else already in use (like Mach-O)?
Any PRs or URLs or email threads about this I can look at?
