Add pros/cons section

There are some arguments against using Prelink presented in fedora bug #1183, but I'm not familiar enough with it to know the arguments for using it.

I just added a warning in the page intro linking to the bug report you mention, thank you for bringing that up. It is indeed quite dissuasive of using prelink at all. Neitsab (talk) 11:00, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Personally I think this page should be removed, since it documents an invasive change with no demonstrated benefits. But then so are eudev, linux-ck, etc., and it's good to have the downsides listed. Via [1], closing -- Alad (talk) 11:06, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
