Hey... nobody can dis you for reading the manual. Most of us don't. :-)

Insofar as working on Subversion for the past five/six months, which also
uses libtool. That wouldn't be a big deal, but I had to wrestle with
integrating Neon and Expat(-lite) into the build, and figuring out how to
properly set up the linking against those (embedded) libs. The other
suicide-inducing involvement with libtool was trying to get a module built
and installed into Apache (as both static-link and dynamic-load). The latter
is why I believe Apache could possibly simplify module writers' experiences
by using something that only builds DSOs (rather than full shared libs).

Any other concerns out there, people?
