We are merging `libc++abi.a` into `libc++.a` but we ship `libc++abi.so` and `libc++.so` as separate (and use the generated linker script to pull in `libc++abi.so` when you pass `-lc++` to linker). I'd be fine merging `libc++abi.so` into `libc++.so` as well, but we'll need to figure out a transition plan since there are several places in our build right now that expect `libc++abi.so` to exist. We cannot land this change as is because that would break the `-static-libstdc++` use case, since Clang driver only passes `-lc++` to the linker and not `-lc++abi` and there's nothing that would pull `libc++abi.a` in.

This change as currently laid out does not permit that to happen, since `libcxxabi-objects` implies that the objects are merged both in the static and in the shared library. I guess we could introduce a new `libcxxabi-objects-static` option, however that would be kind of strange. We can either do that, or wait for you to stop relying on `libc++abi.so` existing and switch to `libcxxabi-objects` wholesale for Fuchsia. WDYT?
> > Gentle ping. It would be nice to land this in one form or another. If you don't think Fuchsia can stop relying on `libc++abi.so` being there, I could add yet another `libcxxabi-objects-static` -- I still feel like that's better than the status quo.
> We discussed this on our team and we don't have any issues switching towards combined `libc++.so`, we just need to figure out a transition plan. Let me test this change locally to see if landing this as is will break anything.
Gentle ping -- did you get any time to investigate this?
