So, if I retitled the webpage
"libtool rocks! (except when dealing with .la files in rpm packaging)"
would that help?
(Hmm... sounds good, I think I'll do that anyway)

Regardless, there are *real* problems outlined and addressed in this
proposal and said webpage.  If I've made errors/omissions, please point
them out, but jumping on a soapbox and yelling "FUD!" isn't helping anyone.
