I know some people have issues with that, and it's not ideal, but I am +1
on it. In my experience, git submodule does not always work as expected. I
dunno if it's not heavily used/tested, or flawed design. If we plan to
stick with one version anyway, it shouldn't be much of an issue and if
someone figures out what we are doing wrong with submodule we can always go
back to it in the future.
