Not to try and go tooo far off topic for this list, but can you 
elaborate on why?

We have a very annoying amount of problems with overlinking and bogus 
package dependences which is also a very bad idea :( To give a trivial 
example, deprecating xcb-xlib.so as the lastest git master does, 
required half the distro to be rebuild depsite none of the other 
packages directly using this library...
