I completely agree that we do not want to reorganize the repos here, and
we have never considered that.
However, it would be best if these repos could be built after the base
module has been built, so we may have to go back and forth between the
repos to get the right build sequencing. While that would be a pain with
the existing SUBDIRS-style build, I was hoping/assuming it would be
easier with the flat-Makefile-style build, in which make figures out the
proper build order based on the dependencies -- i.e. the way make is
supposed to be used.
