Exclude infrequently used routines
Putting infrequently used routines in a shared library
can degrade performance,
particularly on paging systems.
Traditional a.out files contain all code they need at run time.
The code in an a.out file is
related to the process.
Therefore, if a process calls a function,
it may already be in memory
because of its proximity to other text in the process.
``Organize to improve locality''.
Exclude routines that use much static data
Include large, frequently used routines
