Oh OK.  In general, we always unbundle software (for better
transparency, handling of security updates, etc.).  So it can’t be a
long-term plan to keep everything bundled in ‘go-ipfs’ (well, unless we
don’t add any new Go packages, in which case bundling in this specific
package becomes “invisible” :-)).

So hmm, you’re right!  I’m sure I saw go packages somewhere, dunno…
