Interesting idea, however, I see no way to implement it in a simple way.
First I thought about chaining o65 files (using a header mode bit that
says "chained" when another file follows), but should cross-references
(from one file to another) be handled? Especially when relocation is
involved? The only way I see is via exported globals in one file and external 
references in the other and the loader resolving these textual references.
This would not even be late binding, but even "late linking".
I wonder whether the system loader should be able to handle things like this.
