Okay, so I made some changes and here's how it works now:

  1. If you clone the repository as instructed in the README, everything
     just works.

  2. If you clone the repository and then just checkout the submodule, but
     not at its latest version, you get an empty directory with a README
     telling you exactly the commands to get the latest documentation.

  3. When I release stable versions of the library, the default checkout
     of the documentation submodule will be the documentation for that
     version of the library instead of an empty directory with a README,
     as one would expect.
