So we are now a year later,

some people are getting excited at getting rid of .la files again but no
decent solution has been presented yet that I am aware of. We've had two
situations recently:
      * https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264249 which got
        reverted
      * https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=266016 which author of
        the change don't want to revert

My questions are simple:
      * do we have a plan ? I mean something real, not people doing
        stuff in their "territory" or "lonewolves".
      * do we want to *harm* our users base by changing this starting
        from low level libs ?

ok maybe that's rhetoric questions but I can't help it.
