I believe one of the traditional reasons for separate compilation of
subroutines and linking is that it reduces the number of symbols that
you have to keep track of at one time. Only one routine worth of
internal symbols for the compiler. All the external symbols for the
linker. Do you mean 5e8 symbols for one subroutine?
