Please, don't ever bring up X in a Santiago thread if you can help it.  It
will just remind him to go on another of his hysterical harangues against
me for not bowing to his will.

I inherited the practice of splitting out the -static packages; it wasn't a
decision I made.  I wasn't sure if I should stick with it or not, since it
is technically against policy, but didn't feel strongly enough about it to
change anything.
