I'll repost my updated version of this text. Please put it in.
: 14 - Link shared libraries themselves against other shared libs, instead
: of including their code statically. This has several advantages. It
: allows the linker to warn about "mixed libc5/libc6 binaries", and,
: more general, makes the dependencies of shared libraries themselves
: more explicit; this should be used in generating the Depends: line of
: a library package (e.g. through dpkg-shlibdeps). This could prevent
: subtle bugs resulting from interactions between code (statically
: included) from incompatible library versions. Also, it can reduce
: memory use. -- email@example.com (J.H.M. Dassen)
