There are three reasons. First is it's not ideal from a performance
point of view because it contains something like four wrapper layers.
Second it isn't used a lot. Third the licensing is LGPL whereas the
rest of One-Click it MIT.

We recommend experienced users, especially ones going into production,
to load only the parts the need.
