Hmm, while you could maintain that as a private hack, I somewhat doubt
a hack for a single, really unimportant (from binutil's point of view)
target would get acceptance for that kind of code change.

Sorry, I didn't mention: I was planning on keeping it as a private hack. Well, at least private to the AVR community anyway since the format is specific to a processor.

If at all, then you'd probably need to hack that up so *any* supported
controller-like CPU could use it, and then just handle the AVR as a
single instance of such a controller.

Hmm. Too much work for the moment. Perhaps after I get my official GNU copyright assignment paperwork done. ;-)

Even for the AVR, I think you should not change default formats.
Other people's scripts could easily stumble across it, as they might
assume the 20+ years historical BSD output format to be the default.

Sure, good point. I'll change that back then.

Thanks for the input.
