What's the idea of crating the subdir CMakefiles and the static libs?
I was happy to get rid of them as they add an unnecessary linking step.
Also, are you sure that linking a static lib into a dynamic one is OK?
The same question holds for the other static libs added by other commits.

The idea was that instead of lumping it all together in one file, we 
could split it up to make it easier to understand/maintain in the 
future. This is also the approach used by our current build setup and I 
hadn't heard anyone complaining about that so I just went ahead and 
replicated the same structure.
