Package: libboost-coroutine-dev
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

The boost-coroutine library is currently only compiled as a static
library, while all other boost libraries are compiled also as shared

Static librares cannot be linked against shared objects, and hence
this renders this library useless by other libraries and plugins.

AFAIK, there is no reason to compile it as a shared object, since that
is what most other distros do.
