We more or less do have a policy that other libraries should not be
bundled, but we also want to provide working rust packages with the
finite volunteer time available.

The no-bundling policy also appears not really followed in the go and

That said, I'd like to see comments explaining any bundling and treating
it as a bug to be resolved eventually.
