Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

Wouldnt FatELF be optional ?

FatELF is optional, so i see no problem.

Kernels and Packages could still release non fat-elf binaries...

and the people that need multiples, could use FatELF.

What's the problem here ?
