"While not required, it is good to see that shared library support is
being worked on, and targeted for the upcoming 1.6. release." It is only not required for 15.10, it is a condition of this MIR (that the juju and foundations teams already agreed to) that we gain shared library support by default in the archive for 16.04 if possible.

The juju team still reserves the right to statically link for juju-core in 16.04 if shared library decreases stability for the project for the LTS (in which case, they'll pursue shared library support for juju-core in 16.10). This has all been discussed with the security team.
