It does. Now I have to break the ABI between thread libraries
and dynamic linker, which does hurt. I was about to finish
a way to get almost all the benefits of Variant I from Doeppner's
paper without having to change binutils or GCC. I can't do this now
without rushing my changes, because the current rtld and the rtld
I would create are not binary compatible anymore.

At the very least should this code not go into Stable.
