In theory, I agree. However, in this case libevents is about a factor 10
larger in terms of source code than libtevent, and that's even without
the wrapper that would add talloc support and the support for AIO.

But more importantly (with my upstream hat on): we have to support a lot
of folks that are not running fancy systems like Debian (apt FTW), and
who have to still install everything manually. This means another
dependency for them to install.
