How many libs are you thinking of? The build times will start to get
large again if we have dozens of libs, even if they are each small. 

I also wonder if you are thinking of versioning these libs?
Maintaining a versioned lib properly is a lot of work, so perhaps it
would be better using a single unversioned "" just as a
"shared code" hack rather than doing "proper" libs if doing it
properly means having the burden of library versioning for lots of
