Either I mis-expressed this, or you mis-remember: I'm in no way
intending to use DWARF information. What I want to use is the
_full_ ELF / COFF symbol table instead of nm output (which has
quite a bit of interesting information discarded).

I'm curious where you found this as I'm unaware of such
functionality. Recently they even decided to discard all
.eh_frame / .dwarf_frame generating annotations the
compiler can't itself generate.
