I'm afraid we'll need to keep the history so that clones of older
versions of the super project will still work. But we can do that by
tagging the last version of the old master and develop, so it won't
have to be merged into the main branches' histories. This will be
disruptive for anyone who uses 'git pull' to update the module, but
hopefully this will be the last of such changes.

The super project is automatically updated to the lastest
develop/master versions of every submodule. The odeint test results
are at:
