Why is SPServices added to jquery's methods?

I've just discovered SPServices and it look like it will be super-helpful, I'm just wondering if there is a reason that jquery.fn was extended instead of jquery itself?

When I started to build the library in 2009, I did quite a lot of research on the existing plugins and suggested development patterns. Based on everything I saw, this was the best approach to take.
