Ok. So what? First into 1.2.whatever or directly into 1.3.whatever?
If the stuff shall go into 1.3.x, when can we have a reliable
source tree that doesn't change every 5 minutes?

Is it really a good idea to hack a new linker right now?
Wouldn't it be better to wait for 2.6.1/2/3 or, even better,
to send your patches to the GNU people so that they *stay*
in the source tree?
