So I talked with Magnus. The simplest solution is fully integrated
because I designed pgScript to be fully integrated. A library is the
most difficult one.
Therefore we chose fully integrated with a possibility to deactivate
pgScript with a ./configure option if it is not wanted.
And also give the possibility to build pgScript.exe standalone
executable in xtra/pgscript.
