I do want to emphasise that I really like this plan, it makes a lot of
sense to me.

For the filename, we could figure out a good way to add it to the .comment
section of the ELF - that could open up a new world of passing information
to LAR via the .o without the command line.  Or am I super double guilty for
invoking black magic?

NetBSD has a tool called mcs that does something simlar.
