I make use of Silex for various micro applications. Those are packaged
as .deb packages and each of those packages embed its own Silex (and
Twig an Pimple and so on). Instead of trying to maintain this growing
embed hell any longer, I decided to get rid of it and instead do
something more reasonable by maintaining Silex inside Debian.
