Clarifying it would be preferable.

Here's one data point on it..

Here is the setup that I used to run where I needed the setting:

OS: RH9 i386 with kernel 2.4.20-18.9 (stock RH kernel)
Java: Sun j2sdk1.4.1_03
Tomcat 4.1.30 (official release binary)

Then, later, I needed Java 1.5.x features, so I upgraded it to
Sun Java 1.5.0.  At the time that I upgraded just the JDK, I
knew very well that I have LD_ASSUME_KERNEL set, but I
since I didn't upgrade the OS (same kernel & libs) I left that
setting alone to see if it would cause any ill effects.  That was
a couple of years ago, and it has been working perfectly
ever since.

Yes, that would be excellent.
