There are several packages using spidermonkey, and they are originally
designed for various versions of spidermonkey. If we'd keep these
bundled versions, we'd have 10 copies of different versions of (security
hazardous) spidermonkey in the archive. If we'd package all of them as
separate packages, we'd have 10 spidermonkey packages. The sensible
choice is to either avoid using spidermonkey, or use the latest
available in Debian.
