Are you saying Fedora and SuSE have API documentation for all the
libraries they ship?  I must say, that surprises me.

My own experience with upstream's opinion of Debian is that they think
we should have fixed #291641 a long, long time ago.  And I can't
disagree.  (The problem is that since libtool apparently exposes a
shortcoming in binutils, nobody seems willing to add a workaround to
libtool, waiting instead for a fix from binutils.)
