 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.
