There is no code in libtree-sitter.a that provides a language; all
languages are built separately, by the language developers.

https://github.com/tree-sitter/tree-sitter builds libtree-sitter.a, and
the command line tools to build a language.

https://github.com/tree-sitter/tree-sitter-python builds the object file
providing the python language.

There are many other languages, each with its own repository.
