Agreed, for 2.1.2. But note that the -flat_namespace should only be used on 
10.1/Darwin 1.4, not on 10.0/Darwin 1.2.

For 2.2 I would like to do away with the -flat_namespace and in stead follow 
the path I explained in a previous mail. It is much less error-prone, and it 
should be more efficient to load modules too (according to Apple's docs).
