we can see that from the diff already, so we would prefer to know, why would
you like to have this change included.

Can't this be solved in some less intrusive way? I can imagine, that this is
not going to be bisect friendly and could provide other woes in the future.

What about introducing shared library in conjunction to the static one, thus
not breaking anything? Then if it makes sense, we could convert existing
static users to shared version in a next step.
