Wacky question:

As we are trying to terminate use of the current toolchain at some
point, and would like to eventually migrate to ELF, why not make the
vax use ELF/ELF shared libs, instead of hacking on a new a.out shared
lib thing, when we have the glory (on the vax) of not needing to be
backward compatible with an old shared library format?
