Hi Antony,

This is very much needed!

I've tinkered with possible plugin designs and this reminds me to look
back at it.

Have you ever looked at ELFIO?

It has no dependency library(not even libdl) to read/write elf files.

My only stumbling block was I didn't get through a 64 bit test case yet
and stepped away because the developers of ELFIO weren't responding.
But I really am impressed with the elfio design and functionality

I wanted to apply it to plugins as well as a new way for xml binding for
c++ (but there are only so many hours in a day:-)
