If having externally available packages merged as subtrees means that
the repo should include the revision histories from the upstream
repositories, it doesn't. At least, not for js2-mode and company.

Similarly, directories packages/{company,js2-mode} don't include the
additional files and directories present in upstream repos but not in
ELPA, containing tests, README.md and a few other supporting files.

I imagine that's going to complicate the merging procedure.
