We use Git submodules for druntime, Phobos and dmd-testsuite. This
means that they are tied into the main repository via a specific
commit ID, so the v0.12.0-alpha1 tag in the LDC repository
unambiguously identifies the druntime/Phobos versions to use.

Not having to manually maintain the cross-dependencies between
repositories, which is rather error-prone, is actually one of the few
advantages of submodules.
