Let me know when you do this, and I'll remove the mainline from
hg.addictivecode.org. I'll leave some of the others around; jbuty is
still relevant at least, just needs updates and merging to mainline.

Yeah, but then you need to communicate which particular submodule the
other folks should use (and they all have to maintain git and gnulib now
too, though I suppose that problem is lessened if wget is moved to git;
but then there's the issue of Windows support).
