Do _not_ rewrite history, or you will mess up the submodule references
in the super-project. Historically, there was a v2 directory; we
decided that it wasn't the conversion's job to go back and change
history. If you want to get rid of the v2 director, just move
everything from v2 to its parent and delete v2 in a regular-old Git
