I'd say we shouldn't start using this randomly on packages now. there
are a few examples where sodeps might be useful; e.g. for pacman and its
deps. So especially for packages that are not in [core] I would consider
not using it.

It makes things more complicated and solves a problem we don't really
have. It's also not useful to introduce it for just one lib. It's
probably needed for the whole dependency subtree of a package. I hope
this explanation will do for now :-)
