To gild the moderately obvious, I question if we should just mask all
related problems forever, by just giving up tracking and moving
_everything_ into /lib.

According to du -A, /usr/lib/lib*.so* on my system is 11 meg.  /lib is
currently 9.4, so it's only about doubling the size.
/boot/kernel/kernel is 25, so the whole combined set is still smaller
than the kernel itself, never mind + the modules.

For that matter, everything under /usr/lib minus the .a files and the
debug/ tree is still only about 33 meg, so even if the net really
needs to be cast wider than lib*.so* (and it's not like we'd need to
move the symlinks themselves anyway), it can't spread very far.
Certainly we shouldn't be cavalier about blowing up the size of / for
no reason, but we're talking a pretty small increment.  Compared to
the kernel debug symbols before they got moved, it's miniscule.
