Yeah.  It's probably also worth noting that we might (soon?) remove the
-mno-explicit-relocs/-mno-split-addresses mode from gcc.  Having both
modes does add to the maintenance burden and the gas support for PIC
relocation operators has been around for a while now.  (It dates back
to binutils 2.14 IIRC.)
