1744 isn't going to be resolved until someone steps in and does the
work. And it is pretty unlikely that will happen in time for this
release, since we are about to publish the beta.
Hopefully this release is going to supply binary installers for popular
platforms, and those installers will include options for static
libraries. That may ease the urgency of 1744.
