Actually, there's an issue with this. Namely, when running shell scripts
the canonical name is used instead of the one originally provided to

As a consequence, some shell scripts will fail if they're sensitive to $0.
For instance this is the case with /usr/bin/update-fontlang (in the
tex-common package on Debian).

I guess we have no choice but to canonicalize in ld.so. I'll see what I
can come up with.
