Re: static libs ... again

So, not too long ago someone asked why I still had static libs in one of my packages since they are "banned" or at least strongly discouraged, so I started removing them from my packages. All of the libraries I maintain are math libraries, so security concerns are a non-issue. After removing the static libs from fftw-devel, it took less than 24 hours to get a bug report asking for them back. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=181897 for the reasoning.

It seems theirs is a rather specific and unique case. Should we change policy to accommodate corner cases like that?
