I just heard through the grapevine, that spread folks prefer the use
of static libraries vs. shared libraries.  Can someone
confirm/deny/explain this?  I was under the impression that shared
libraries were the way to go for pretty much everything these days.  I
understand the (marginal?) speed benefits of statically compiling in
libraries, but...  anyone have an authoritative opinion/explanation?
