Hmm, I think -dev libraries are not the primary target of optification
right now.  Would it be acceptable to have 'official' instructions (or a
script) for moving all of /usr to the eMMC?  I think this is preferable
to using optified packages and people who want to develop on the device
are probably willing and able to follow those instructions.

But if we optify a -dev package, we should probably tune the heuristic.
Many -dev packages install into /usr/include/<name>/ where <name> is
close to but not exactly the same as the package name.  Right now,
maemo-optify only moves whole directories if they are named exactly like
the package.  We could improve this heuristic carefully, or add some
command line options or a control file for maemo-optify.

I think the latter would be more useful.
