What's the point?  Any decent paging manager will only keep one copy of it
in RAM anyway.  The size of the executable is meaningless if the OS has to
pull in the library to run it.  Ultimately the same bits have to come off
the disk and into RAM whether they are in one file or twenty.  One less file
is one less thing to get screwed up in the distribution, IMHO.
