This is a valid point.  In fact, change the context to shared library
dependencies, and the trend is exactly the opposite.  These days, all
deps are expected to be linked in explicitly or else things go boom;
we've had to fix a lot of those :-)

I suspect that it's something we'll address again if it causes enough
problems to warrant a change, but until/unless it does, we'll likely
keep doing what we're doing.
