IMHO yes.  From libtool's point of view, there's nothing needed besides
the command line.  Other build tools can easily add support for this as
well.  One additional bonus is you don't have to worry about precedence
-- it's the job of the tool calling libtool.

Just my opinion (and by no means set in stone).
