The more, the merrier. In particular, I'm hoping there's an assembler
out there (or compiler, for that matter) that "optimizes" relocations
by gathering common relocation "targets" (read: addends) into what OMF
calls THREAD subrecords of the FIXUPP record. (And then references
these THREADs in subsequent FIXUPs instead of specifying the "targets"
separately in each FIXUP. Neither NASM nor Turbo Assembler (with DJ's
simple test objects) seem to do this.
