Eiter ways, even both together, sound fine to me.  The former
seems a lot simpler to implement (*), but if you are
volunteering to implement the second...

(*) I'm assuming _LIBRARIES and _LTLIBRARIES have been merged
first.  This shouldn't be too hard to do, and actually I'd like
to do it, but it's unclear whether I'll have enought time to
commit to this before before mid-march.
