One thing to add regarding ongoing development - gnulib is available 
through git, so it might be possible to work with an remote git 
submodule just like we do currently with docs and api on the core git. 
Only updating the master submodule pointer if necessary leaving 
everything ontouched if possible. Normal checkout by core git users 
would be affected with git submodule init & update.

Good/bad idea?
