I think it is ok. What we are doing is moving to a completely uniform
way of handling files. They are always ELF, we always process them and
produce LAR files. The special case for binary blobs is gone -- I
think this is good. We actually use the LAR entry in all cases, since
we got rid of binary blobs.
