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...
