Ah, I see. Thanks.

Of course I can and did, but that's not the point here.

I am trying to suggest to add a framework for seamless far-progmem support, as 
similar as possible to the "classical" progmem. For that, I suggest to add an 
additional section just after the last .fini (and before the .data 

I can modify then the scripts *manually* ;-), and create the appropriate macros 
and write a few lines of documentation; but I have no idea how to submit a 
patch properly, so all I could do is to submit the modified linker scripts and 
(more)pgmspace.h as a whole. But I am afraid the amount of work I (or anybody 
else) would spend on it is far below "8 man hours" Joerg was talking about, 
making it questionable, whether the 8 man hours couldn't be spent by the 
insider on the actual changes rather than fixing changes made by somebody who's 
not aware of all the whys and hows...
