What on earth?
Please tell me if I have this right:
* You don't like .la files
* So you're unilaterally removing them from a core package
(libxcursor) with dozens of reverse-depends, breaking all of
* Even though they're a years-old and very well established
* Which upstream libtool has not yet decided to eliminate ("It's
already under discussion")
* And which has not been discussed on debian-devel or any other
Debian list as far as I can tell (Google search).
Can you really be serious?
For example, if the maintainer of GLib decides (s)he doesn't like the
way it handles modules, and upstream *might* at some point change the
behavior, is that alone enough justification to change it and break all
of its dozens of reverse-depending packages?
