Well that would require the creator of the pc file for the consuming
application to know that some of its dependencies are unstable
libraries.  It would also need to know the names of these libraries and
add them to the AllLibraries variable.  That is probably not ideal as
there could be a change in an underlying library.

Ideally, it would be nice for pkg-config to handle the Libraries
variable like it does the --libs.  By aggregating all of the dependent
libs together.

One way would be to just add that functionality to pkg-config or we
could commandeer the --cflags functionality and use it for our own
purposes, but that is probably a bad idea.
