[ECOS] Tracking eCos as a hg/git submodule

I'm reading up on git submodules and it looks like just the ticket
to handle a typical eCos application which is pulled together
from specific modified versions of multiple projects and
libraries, therein eCos.

submodules importantly supports the concept of a modified eCos
repository for a project and a way to track and eventually pushing
those changes back up to the official eCos repository.

Importantly such a modified eCos repository can be shared
amongst several applications.

I would like to see that the choice of DVCS in eCos does not
put unnecessary stumbling blocks in the way working in this

I'm sure mercurial supports submodules.

Mercurial can probably clone git repositories... http://hg-git.github.com/.

Vice versa is probably also possible....
