Yep.  I don't remember if I was the one raising the issue or just
participating, but I'm perfectly satisfied with the -osuf and -hisuf
options (which I hadn't discovered at the time).

(I still advocate generating a warning/error when GHC is used to link
profiling and non-profiling object files, though.  But as it never
happens anymore, it's not a big deal.)

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
