darktable upstream says  it makes no sense, because new/fixed camera
support needs changes in both the rawspeed library and any application
that uses it. They do see value in abstracting all that logic into a shared
library, but that's not a priority for them at the moment. Since rawstudio
is using a different version of rawspeed, you'd have to package two
different parallel installable versions. That seems like a waste of
time and effort, which would be better spent helping both upstreams move
the required code into rawspeed library.
