If it's libtool's job to create them, and libtool wants to be a
transparent solution, then it is also libtools job to remove them.  Surely
you can do it in the makefile, but in reality you can do everything that
libtool does in a makefile, but it's nice that libtool encapsulates the
details so I don't have to worry about them.

This would only put additional burden on the maintainer.  If he wants
burden then he doesn't need to use libtool.
