There are cases where we deliver static libs, they are usually historic

Some people consider security issues with dynamic linking of setuid
executables a good reason to link those statically (or completely avoid
certain shared libs).

I'm no expert on this though.

THis is superstition.

If you static link libraries, we need to release updates for the library
for both the library and the setuid binary ...

Easy to overlook such cases, thats why we strive to keep everything shared only.
