The ELF parser in v3 ought to be removed. Then the 'legacy' code can
be removed too, and we have shrunk v3, and removed any elf parsing
issues in v3.

I only left the ELF code in v3 until such time as we were sure
everything worked. With the .bss patch I just committed, there are no
problems left of which I am aware.

I would welcome this patch.
