This works, thanks.

By the description, it looks like using --merge in the above procedure will
leave libs/bind and libs/smart_ptr on develop, but I'm not sure what it will
do to the rest; the alternative is for me to add update = merge to
[submodule "bind"] and [submodule "smart_ptr"] in .gitmodules.

Not sure if this is worth the bother. It's not that hard to manually
checkout these two after update. Let's see first what the testing
infrastructure will do. :-)
