I guess my intuition was wrong then. ;-)
Probably won't be the last time, sorry.
I don't know of any issues in our implementation or any
others that prevent either choice.
If the compiler uses a comdat-style mechanism for including
some units and not others, then each top-level tag
will probably end up in it's own CU-block, with multiple
CU-blocks per object file.
If there's no evidence of any implementations putting multiplr
top-level tags in one block, (debuggers or compilers) then we
should probably standardize on it.
