The only time I've seen .la files really being needed was with KDE-3.
And that wasn't so much an issue that couldn't be solved as the KDE sig
wanting to put effort into KDE-4 rather than working on the deficincies

I thought Michael Schwendt pointed out times when plugin .la's would
cause issues as well.  Is this chain of reasoning correct:  Plugin .la
encodes need for library foo's .la.  foo .la is packaged in the -devel
subpackage.  Plugins now drag in the -devel package and its dep chain.
