Well I would say there are two different things going on here, one
doesn't exclude the other.

Yes and no. So I might build an object differently for say a different
platform, but I am not sure I would necessarily build it differently for
static versus dynamic (linking is a different story of course).

(lto is also a different story, as when you build objects with lto on,
as I remember you end up with guile not bytecode)

Ok - but there is nothing in the above in this that precludes all of
these object variants being used in both static and dynamic builds, it's
all down to how they are integrated - FD.io VPP does this out of the box
as it happens.

+1, that would be a simple solution.
