It is because you cannot fire up a lib and run it to do something, other 
programs use it to do something like visualisation. Therefore sci-libs would 
be a much more appropriate place as it is a scientific library - to be useful 
somebody needs to build an application that uses it. Again this is my opinion 
and I welcome discussion on the matter. I don't see any reason to start 
placing libs in there though, or any of the other sci-* categories.
