Breaking piggybank out into it's own repos has been discussed before and
would be an awesome thing. Dmitriy looked into this a while back. IIRC, the
challenge has been around complexity with managing piggybank/pig evolution
in a way that handles version dependancies well between the two. So for now
piggybank remains a contrib of pig, where they can evolve in lock step.
The Pig on github is just a mirror of Pig's apache svn, so you can
contribute via patches made from either.
