Exactly.

The best example I can give is that I've fixed broken linker scripts in
libgloss that tried to match linkonce small data sections using
.gnu.linkonce.s*, without realizing that linkonce small bss sections are
.gnu.linkonce.sb.*.  This caused some C++ programs to fail in strange
and difficult to debug ways.  Those dots are important.
