As I said before, I disagree with this, it imposes pain into regular 
contributors (as now I have to checkout two repos and install two instead of 
one and remember where things I want to commit are) in favour of the mythical 
drive-by contributor. And then again I do not see the benefit for the drive-by 
contributor since obviously he'll still need to checkout the data repository 
if he wants to make sure the patch he is making works.
