Because I didn't know that's possible? :D

I dropped a remark about .s files several pages back but noone picked
it up, so I assumed it's infeasible for some reason. If that is the
case, then this really sounds like a good idea. This way we should be
even able to generate the split function without relying on PGO or
checked-in binaries.
