Which brings yet another argument in favour of not disallowing
statically builds: ISVs love to use these in order to have one build

users, and some may say the noone cares about proprietary browser
plugins or java vms, but I would be sad to not have a Linux way to
partition HP storage for example.
In this case please reread this thread, that's exactly what we'd like
ISVs to avoid and all the reasons stated in the thread why static
linking is not desirable for that purpose apply to the vast majority
of ISV uses of static linking.
