Sorry for the non-response until now.  I don't have access to any
other distributions to check.

IMHO, changes like this *are* important.  Especially to other
developers who find their packages mysteriously fail to compile now
that the convienence library is gone.

I'm of the opinion that we should either 

(a) stick to the decision and announce the change and rationale more
widely, or 
(b) revert to the previous state.

You point out that the previous convenience libraries were used
differently on different distributions.  That, to me, is sufficient to
go with plan (a).
