I know all that, that's why I list it as an open task. I think that 
using devel is better, but I still haven't a compelling argument, that's
why I didn't came back to you. I wanted first to improve the script I
sent to be able to do some automated QA on static packages, such that 
there is a way to warn packagers who build against a static library 
when the static library has been rebuilt, and also scripts to help 
with rebuilding all the packages that depends on the static library if
the change in the static library deserves it, and also warn packagers 
that are not in initialcc but build against a static library. After 
that I think that using -devel would have been compelling, but we're
not here yet ;-).

I hadn't time to progress in this directions, and it is not high on 
my list (and it wouldn't have been high even if I hadn't left fedora).
