Why, having everything always available as a shared library never causes
*any* problems *at all*...

libgal12 - G App Libs (run time library)
libgal13 - G App Libs (run time library)
libgal11 - G App Libs (run time library)
libgal7 - G App Libs (run time library)
libgal8 - G App Libs (run time library)
libgal9 - G App Libs (run time library)

Anyway, Philippe Troin has a long history of opposing any decision I
make for sole reason that I have made it (personal animosity), so I am
disregarding his objections for that reason on top of the technical
fallacies he has upheld to support it.

Besides which, his assertion about providing all .a's as .so's is
contradicted by the Debian Policy I amendment I referenced in my
original message, which passed without objection once we had it in
concrete form.

As usual, Philippe probably didn't bother to read much more than subject
line before objecting to my proposed course of action.
