It is possible, to supress splitting of .edata's into different modules by smartlinking? If is it easy to keep all .edata's in one
module, only one global name would be enough to prevent losing exports by smartlinking. For example, it would be possible
to introduce an obligatory module with standard label (e.g., .global $$EXPORTS$$) and add reference to this label directly to
startup file or to PASCALMAIN. If output file must contain no exports, this module will contain only this label. If linking is not
smart, this label will also present in big .ow file. May be, it is a solution? But how easy is supressing of .edata's splitting?
