In a recent posting Dave mentioned that stage now causes a relink of a target
instead of a simple copy. I had realized this before and thought this is a
bug. I just want to let you know that there are situations where this is not
desirable. I have an application that take 10+ min to link. I just stage to
"copy" the executable to a more accessible place in the filesystem, adding
shortcuts to identify variants. I can no longer do this as linking twice
wastes way to much time.
