Well, the real reason was that I refused to comment on this topic :-)

The whole "problem" is completely artificial. Or in other words, there is no
such problem.

ca65 can do alignment, it just needs one prerequisite to do so: The start
address of the binary must also be aligned. This is not more and not less than
other compiler packages need when doing alignment (groepaz is right when he
says that gas can do alignment, he forgot to tell that segments are aligned at
16 byte addresses for DOS and at full memory pages for most other operating
systems, so gas has the needed prerequisites).

If someone thinks that ca65 is doing something wrong, please try first to
understand how alignment is currently implemented and then tell me why you
cannot live with that. Until someone comes up with a real good reason why the
current implementation is unusable, I would prefer not to waste any more time
on this discussion.
