After watching the recent shared/dynamic threads, and reading the
archives from five or six years ago, I have a question...

Dynamic linking works by the kernel running the dynamic linker,
which loads shared objects and fixes the symbol tables, yes?  Is
there some reason that a statically-linked program couldn't
include some "ld-elf.a" type of intelligence?  Would that be
necessary and sufficient to allow statically-linked programs to
load shared objects?
