cd libs
git clone git_at_[hidden]:Beman/simple.git simple

works fine for me, assuming there is no 'simple' directory that already

A submodule is just a separate clone inside a tree, with the master tree
aware of its revision.

There is no problem putting a clone of any repository inside of
boost/libs, and if the layout follows that of Boost, it (b2 headers,
stage, install, etc) will just work.

At least the headers work fine for boost.simple
