It just updates submodules to the latest version. Merging will never
really work on the super project as they're updated independently. The
only thing that the current develop branch is good for is making up
for the shortcomings in our testing setup. This is one of the reasons
why Peter Dimov suggested changing the branches in his proposal, and I
suggested that much of what's in the super project should be moved
into submodules.
