Yes, I'm really looking forward to this. It will make life a little 
harder for developers who have to work with an up-to-date source tree of 
both Clownfish and Lucy but this can be worked around by setting

If we clone the Lucy repo, the history of most of the Clownfish files 
will include two move operations:

* From core/Lucy to clownfish/runtime/core/Clownfish
* From clownfish/runtime/core/Clownfish to runtime/core/Clownfish

It will be hard to track changes across these renames, so I think we 
could as well start the Clownfish repo from scratch.
