I really only put in the removal of the devel sub-package for symmetry with the optional removal of the python sub-package.
However - I don't really feel strongly one way or the other about that...so can redo this without the devel removal. It should be an easy fix...I'll have time to take a look at it a little later today.

While in general I think this is useful, I don't see the point in
the disabling of the -devel sub-RPM. This doesn't impact anything
at compile time, and if you don't want it post-build, then simply
don't distribute it. The -devel could still be useful for a client
only version, if people want to build client apps. As it is the
extra conditionals for disabling -devel just clutter the spec file
more without any obvious advantage.
I'd ACK something without the -devel conditionals.
