Good, let's go ahead.
I'm sure there will be code that "make syntax-check" doesn't like (for
example, whitespace at the ends of lines I'd assume). So I'm sure
we'll need to adopt some kind of phased approach. I'm happy to do a
significant share of that kind of work. However, if you're willing
I'd be happy for you to do the submodule change, since you've clearly
done it before.
