It does not work as far as I know. I don't believe the problem was ever
that -fobject-code wasn't a dynamic flag; I suspect the reason is that
by the time we see the pragma we've already committed to compiling the
module. That being said, I'm not as familiar with this part of the
compiler as I'd like to be.
