I think that is a really bad idea. When the library maintainer changes a
source file he also has to commit this to the library repository. If the
precompiled files wouldn't be versioned noone could find out to which
library revision they belong. You will get for more problems which this
than with checking in the precompiled library.

Hmmm, no.

When the libraries are very "stable" there won't be many commits of
precompiled code. But if the library is "unstable" and therefore changed
very often the application developer has know which library revision he
is using.

No. But you can create a special repository which only contains links
to all other repositories.
