I think in some specific cases.  I've heard there's a microsoft one?
It would be windows only of course.  Is anyone using that with ghc?

gold is supposed to be multi-threaded and fast (don't know about
incremental), but once again it's ELF-only.  I've heard a few people
talking about gold with ghc, but I don't know what the results were.

Unfortunately I'm on OS X, I don't know about any incremental or
multithreaded linking here.
