two things.

a) why a git subtree if we keep working on github with hadrian, wouldn't that imply using a submodule? We use submodules for 
   all the other ghc boot libs that are not part of the tree and are developed on github as well, no? As far as I understand
   a subtree, it's essentially integrating everything into the main tree.  So this looks more like the submodule to subtree
   conversion, when hadrian development is switched over to phabricator?
b) should we really hardcode the full url to hadrian tickets? wouldn't hadrian/#xxx suffice? Assuming for a moment hadrian
   would move into the github.com/haskell org or something, while the linkes would likely (due to githubs url redirection)
   keep on working, until someone recreates a snowleopard/hardian repo, but not necessarily correct anymore.

Anyway, let's do this now rather than later.
