NACK. I didn't even look into it yet. It won't become more trivial if we
start discussing this in 2 years, and we come up with "we don't remember
why we did it like that 2 years ago. There was some reason so we better
leave it as it is". This stuff really scared me in the past.

There is no such thing as a makeshift solution. 

Please go on and commit your ELF-as-LAR stuff without this and the other
hack and keep them in your local tree so it works for you for now. I
will try to fix it as soon as I am through all of the GSoC evaluations.
