Good point - I can't find any use for it. The code seems to agree:

         * XXX allow for executing shared objects. It seems silly
         * but other ELF-based systems allow it as well.
        if (!is_dyn && elf_check_header(eh, ET_EXEC) != 0)
                return ENOEXEC;

Are there any ET_DYN that are not shared libs? Maybe we should remove
the is_dyn exec support completely.
