	Yes, in a shared-library world.  Some systems will
	include it, thinking that you must be doing something
	wierd, but wanting to obey your request. (A very "unix"
	kind of thing to do).
	I think this includes Solaris, where the library would
	be mapped into the address space and all data variables
	memcopy'd to initialize them.
