I don't see any harm with including IUSE="static-libs" for every
package that has working/usable static libraries[1]. Why wait for
users to request it on bugzilla when it's a near-zero-cost and
zero-maintenance to add it to ebuilds?

1. An example of something with unusable static libraries: anything
that links to libX11 (if I'm not wrong).
