my gut reaction there is now you're requiring even newer versions of
binutils than before, and not just to find ones that support
--build-id, but do so without bugs (that's my vague recollection of
things; perhaps i'm wrong).  and you still wouldnt pass the "not safe
outside of Gentoo Linux profiles".

also, although the overhead is minor, the build id section would serve
no useful purpose that i can think once it has been merged.  gnu hash
however is always used at runtime.
