There are dozens and dozens of frameworks out there that have their
place in the juju world. I'd rather not transform a single project
into a catch-all place for everybody to throw framework-specific logic
into, even because hopefully we may even have multiple people pushing
alternative libraries for the same framework. We don't have to
centralize that kind of development.

Isn't that wget and sha1sum?

That still has a place with juju itself, because it's hard to do
outside and very easy to get wrong.
