Let me try to rephrase this in plain words. Just tell me if I get it right.

You want to build a dynamic library (<shared>true) that uses the static
runtime model. And it links to cool_lib as a static library. Did I get this

That leaves several questions:

1. How would I select the runtime model of cool_lib? Does is use the same as
lib a?

2. I'm assuming that you would get a static library a when you change
<shared>true to <shared>false. Is that correct?

3. If yes, what would I get if I don't say static or dynamic at all?

4. Is it really a good decision to drop the distinction between lib and dll?
