Because I have other things to do rather than packaging? Because I already
own enough modules upstream that I don't want to burden myself with maintenance
of a tool in a Bugzilla that I don't like.

It might be easy, but it's not time-free. If there was a way that I could package
it up in such a way that it would be available for Arch, Gentoo, Ubuntu GNOME,
Fedora, or even using on GNOME's nightlies, I would gladly have done it. It's
not possible right now, and I hope it will be possible soon.
