Well, I consider this to be a very ugly hack. Just like Simon I prefer
a cleaner solution via attaching of a special section to the ELF binary.
I'm currently looking at linuxpluginwrapper to get it working without
libmap. If there isn't a real need for user uses beside that and my
work is successfull, I'd like to leave this out.
