The single library is really just a convenience feature. The
other libraries will always be available, and they have to
go somewhere. We like them where they are (I even have projects now
with autoconf tests that like to check in these places). And after all,
we are compulsive propellerheads; why else would we get
involved with sofware? Humor us.

I agree with this and wanted to make this change myself at some
point, but never got a chance to discuss it with Brian. It's just
one of those things that we would want to do all at once so we
don't step on each others toes. Brian?
