This new requirement will impact mainly distribution packagers,
developers and the CI.
While I think this is fine for the first two categories
(python-elftools is now available on most distributions, and you can
also pip install it), the last category is a concern.

If we want to move forward with this patch, this must be addressed in
a timely manner as we don't want to break the CI.
