I think the deal with hidden PLTs is that fopen() cannot be trapped by
an alternate implementation of fopen() inside the LD_PRELOADed
library. But the system call open performed inside the libc's fopen()
(no matter how it was compiled) should get intercepted by the
LD_PRELOAD library. Because I dont think the PLT optimizations would
apply to system calls.

With regard to the original question, I dont foresee any major
problems, but we have not QA'ed this configuration. We would like to
hear if you face any problems.
