I attempted to bundle whisper.cpp into the SDK. In that case, we need to enclose GB-sized model files as well. I have no strong preference on how we bring whisper.cpp into webkit, but adding it as a submodule would be cheaper in terms of maintenance burden (e.g., SDK size).

One concern is integration with webkit tests. Can we make the test bots download whisper.cpp repo and related language models files automatically? If not, speech recognition for webkitgtk/wpe is always disabled for the build, and manually enabled on demand, no?
