    It is never too late. Nowadays, there are no interoperability problems,
    as I have proved in this bug report.

    hmm? Here let me show you the interop problem with your suggestion:

    % gcc -Wl,-dynamic-linker,/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 -o hello ~/src/hello.c
    % readelf -l hello | grep Reque
    [Requesting program interpreter: /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2]
    % ./hello
    bash: ./hello: No such file or directory
    % ls /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2
    ls: cannot access /lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2: No such file or directory

    Let us wait for your users to
    complain about manually creating a symlink.

    So, uhm, you think it's acceptable to force everyone else to create a
    symlink because it's not acceptable to you?
