i started.  sort of.  i don't even know why.  :)

the problem, as i see it, is (a) it will only emit ECOFF_MAGIC_MIPSEL
binaries, (b) it assumes that the input is a little endian binary, and
(c) it assumes that the local machine is of the same endianness.

which says nothing of any 64 bit needs anyone might have.

that said, i'll be poking at it here and there, but i can't promise
anything concrete rsn.
