see many discussions here in the last. The debian and fedora maintainers
both asks for it to be decoupled, as the tar ball copy inside unbound is
confusing and can sometimes accidentally get linked by unbound if the
ldns dev/devel package is not installed. Staticly linked libraries on
systems are not good. If you think you have ldns 1.6.10 but unbound had
been statically linked to 1.6.9, you might have a security issue.....

Also, not every unbound requires a new ldns.

And of course, people use ldns and ldns-python without unbound.
