	Not necessarily; by merging libraries together we can potentially
improve startup performance a fair bit. Fewer scattered libraries on
disk means better access times, more scope for LTO, and faster run-time

	Is it necessary to build with full debug enabled ? how slow is it
really ? [ if it takes ten minutes - how slow is it to re-build with
just the bits you want symbols for & re-run whatever you're
debugging ?].

	I wonder if the new 'gold' linker will help performance wise - have you
tried it ?
