My point was that under my overcomplicated scheme, this doesn't happen. Your
dependency may change from header-only to static/shared, or from
static/shared to header-only, and you don't need to do anything.

And when I say "change" here, I mean that version 1 was header-only, version
2 becomes static/shared, version 3 becomes header-only again, and dependents
don't need to make corresponding changes each time this occurs.
