Agreed: the inconvenience of playing with submodules is probably not
worth the effort. The main (only?) two issues to be fixed in order to
consider the switch from CVS to Git are probably:
- adapt the current translation-check codes to use sha1 sums instead;
- document an easy way to use Git (i.e. for contributors who are *not*
	fluent with Git).
