Darcs and git work together to determine the minimal amount
that needs to go into libgit1.so.



Hold on...  Nobody is speaking about *binary* compatibility, it's
source-level compatibility that we need.  There is absolutely no
reason to introduce the complexities of shared libraries into the
picture.


Source level compatibility and stability is the big deal. Compared to that, shared libraries are an implementation detail, in my opinion. Sometimes those details get "interesting", but they are soluble.

I could care less whether you use libgit.a or a libgit.so. Just as long as distros or anybody else can update their darcs if a major data-loss bug is found in git. A recompile is acceptable. Dealing with the addition of a parameter to index_fd() is not.
