This is great news... thanks for the bug link.
@Bryce - I still think git submodules are a good idea; there's nothing
intrinsically difficult from a developer's perspective after initial
config, and this fix in LP should allow us to run PPA builds.
Anything we can do to minimise unnecessary forks of upstream library
code sounds like a good thing to me! For safety, we can just add
tests to the CMake scripts to allow a feature-incomplete build if the
submodules have failed to pull for whatever reason.
