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.

I'm not fond of wasting any resource just because we think we have plenty. History will tell you that you have to be conservative.

I don't see *any* single reason to bundle useless code to benefict almost no one. Just because some guy came with an idiotic idea and felt innovative we have to agree with him?
