If you mean as part of Emacs binary, then it's because we didn't see a
reason for that, and because doing that has the disadvantage of making
Emacs dependent on another project.

Please describe the difficulties you had in configuring hunspell as
the speller.  It's hard to respond to such general statements.

How slow is "painfully slow"?  Can you provide some numbers?  Can you
compare the speed of spell-checking an Emacs buffer with doing the
same using hunspell's own UI?
