Basically because it is intended to become the core sound sampled
provider. Also optional/separate parts become less tested than
integrated parts. Rhino is different because it is completely maintained
upstream. Splitting our core sources into separate repos isn't really
helping integration.

If however Omair and Ioana want to maintain it separately and do
releases separately from the rest of IcedTea then of course they may do
so and then we can treat it like we treat rhino for example as a
completely separate thing.
