[Haskell-cafe] Porting ELF statifier to Haskell!

Interesting tool.  For my recent work I too have found a use for the
elf package, but its lack of a full binary instance and no parsing of
.symtab or .dynstr sections limits its usefulness.  This isn't a
debilitating limitation - you can use elf for basic inspection then
perform mutations via objcopy and ld, which are more likely to have
any oddities / corner cases accounted for anyway.
