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?
