OK, in other words basically ignore the issue?

The danger of this is breakages - for example Boost.Build has completely
stopped working for me because the super-project was updated but the
subproject was not. A manual update of the subproject fixed
things, but I suspect not everyone would realize that was what was needed.

Whatever I suspect folks (well this one at least!) will need some very clear
guidance on this,

Thanks, John.
