Ok, great.

Btw, stylistically, should we strive towards using double dashes for the 
pdb option? I think that's the most canonical way for such getopt options 
(even though it doesn't make any practical difference). I've started 
trying to update various users to prefer that form (together with 
preferring -Wl,--pdb=<name> over -Wl,--pdb,<name>) and probably will send 
a few more.
