Thanks, that's completely reasonable for a first-time contributor to
CMake. I understand it's not easy to jump right in and understand how
all the tests operate...

Also completely reasonable. I wouldn't hold up getting it into CMake
for this, but if anybody else has time to work on a test with git
submodules, but no network requirements, that would be most welcome.

Not that I'm a skeptic.... (well, ok, maybe a smidge...) but I would
like to have *independent* confirmation from somebody else that it at
least "works for them" before we merge this into CMake.
