If you think it is useful, you can commit it. But I don't see any 
benefit if we have another implementation.

It sounds to me the same as telling User2 this:

echo foo foo.mod >> autocmd.lst

But it is up to you how to build autocmd.lst. If you think it is easier 
to use an ELF section, why not. But I'm a bit afraid of a too much 
dependency upon ELF.
