Yes that mode of operation does work but is unfortunately not an option for us
as we would like to combine libmylib.so with a different API-compatible
libmyplugin.so in each of a whole range of myapp executables.  To resolve the
symbol in the libmylib.so build would mean building a number of libmylib.so
(one for each libmyplugin.so) and this would make our build take much more
time, as well as inflating the size of our releases.

It seems that it should be fairly easy for gold to broaden its 'as-needed'
criteria by scanning for unresolved symbols in the .so files (as well as in the
.o files) being linked.  That would seem to make the behaviour compatible with
the old behaviour of the old linker.

If that's not possible then -no-as-needed should be the default I think.
