Static database coming soon

The second milestone should be reached soon. Functions will be output to individual relocatable ELF files. Relocation 0'd code will also be savable to aid in static function analysis by rapidly finding previously known functions. Currently saves a raw binary of all the functions and broken ELF files. Working on fixing the broken ELF files and then outputting raw relocation 0'd binaries should be trivial. Not all forms of relocations will be detected at this point and probably never will be. However, "obvious" global variables and such are the first goal and should be done in the near future.
Milestone three, targetted for February, will include basic static analysis of function flow in C form. Basic flow analysis is in fact already performed, but the result is discarded except for mining out function calls.
