As a Gentoo Linux packager I have one more reason for the split! We
currently follow whatever upstream packages together, unlike most binary
distributions, so libtool and libltdl stay on the same package... that
also means that we're bringing in the dependencies for ltmain/libtool.m4
at runtime for packages that are linking to libltdl.

A split would be _extremely_ useful for us!
