By shipping libraries, even compat ones, without a -devel package, we'd be advantaging proprietary apps over Free ones. :-(


Change your terminology to 'pre-compiled' and 're-compiled' because it really doesn't relate to code being proprietary or not, only when it was compiled. And then you also see why the -devel doesn't matter.
