Could I see an example of some other projects using this type of
structure? I checked out the source code for Go and Node.js but it
*appears* that the main repos for both are self-contained.

I do like Git submodules and I would definitely say that we consider
them. But they have many issues of their own.

Therefore I would like to see some examples of projects that are using
an arrangement similar to what is proposed. If I know that other
projects are successfully using this pattern then I would be happy.

I am less familiar with the latter, so forgive me for being a bit
old-school. I'm not the sprightly young developer I used to be, back
when migrating projects from CVS to Subversion was cool ;-)
