On that note, I should add that for 'iemlib' there are a number of  
libraries that depend on iemlib being built as single_object.pd_linux  
since they need namespace prefix support, for example pdmtl  
abstractions.  The same goes for zexy.  pd-zexy is currently just  
zexy.pd_linux, and some abstractions.

Programs should be written for people to read, and only incidentally  
for machines to execute.
