It depends on how often the code changes.  If it changes regularly and qemu is 
expected to take in newer versions, then we need to record which slof version 
comes with which qemu version.  Submodules do just that.
A commit id / tag in the README document it pretty well, no? Also, a README 
file is human readable. Submodules don't really buy anyone anything.

When I do a release, I do the equivalent of:

git submodule update --init
rm -rf roms/*/.git
rm -rf .git

Having the information is submodules makes this process automated and repeatable.

The main motivation is that we need to ship source for any binary we include in our tarball.
