I have had plans for adding support for pmax (and alpha). But never had
the need. ECOFF is only slightly harder than a.out. ELF is worse.

But I think the file handling code must be totaly rewritten. Why?
Simply since most people seems to be using linux for mop loading.
The code must be rewritten in a way so it is possible to handle
the different file formats without the need of system header files.

So, since I wrote it, I think I can answer most questions.
