The shared library is 179 kB. Why don't you just provide the optimized
versions in the same package? Are the any stability/correctness issues
with the optimized versions? If there are, what do you say to people
installing the optimized packages and having trouble because of that?
"I'm sorry, you installed a package I provide, ergo the problem is your
fault not mine"? That doesn't sound right.
