When you have thousands of object files, shortening the name of each
by several bytes when invoking ar can make room for really quite a lot
more files before you run up against the command-line length limit.

Never understimate the value of a modest shortening of file names -
when our ar command-line got to about 230 kibibytes, we had to re-work
the way we invoked ar !
