I just wanted to brought you attention to the glibc 2.10 changelog. Take a 
special attention to the bottom (to the 'Automatic use of optimized 
function' section). URL: http://udrepper.livejournal.com/20948.html
This seems to be a nice way to make fat binaries. Not in the apple lingo, 
but to make binaries with code optimized for different archs. This sounds 
great to, at least, bundle different versions of some functions like strlen 
and the likes.
