Usually more than one project depend on some library, so if one project 
has the "control" of that library, it might not be ideal - for example 
library removal as unnecessary.. Booom.. other projects wont compile..

Separate projects for every library is too heavy. Maybe there could be a 
project for shared libraries? Or even more I would like the idea that 
the libraries would be there already waiting - the same way when I start 
to devel on top of Debian - the need to go and make your own library 
packages is quite minimal.It might be possible to autocompile most of 
the Debian archive for Maemo. Then one could apt-get dependencies for 
development or use.
