(Just in case this got confused, what I was talking about was a relation 
between a commit in core and a commit in a submodule, not
a relation between commits in two different submodules.)

Unfortunately, our reality doesn't seem to match the expectation that 
the submodules we have allow for loose coupling of their content with 
core.  Recent 
"commit changes in dictionries, helpcontent2, and translations" that 
accidentally caused some submodules to turn back a few commits caused 
"hell to break loose" -- in dictionaries, not binfilter.
