Imho yes. Independent of your mail, I just filed a bug against libarts,
since having .la files in the library runtime packages makes different
versions not installable at the same time. See #152485, see below.

IMHO they can be moved with the "good old fileutils" to the
appropriate package or /dev/null.

zgrep 'usr.lib.[a-z-_]*\.la' /download/Contents-i386.gz | grep -v dev | wc -l

Especially KDE people seem to give a f*k on the policy...

zgrep 'usr.lib.[a-z-_]*\.la' /download/Contents-i386.gz | grep -v dev | grep 'kde\|lib.k' | wc -l

.oO( And tell others to recompile _their_ packages when changed libarts
version and force everyone to remove old library because of conflicting
files ).

<solaris-> smoki_: Hab ich ja nicht behauptet oder? KDE hab ich nur
        auf meinem SuSE System... das hab ich strikt von meinem Debian
        getrennt ;)
