It can just be a submodule (like we do with SeaBIOS, etc.).  The only request 
that we split guest agent out of vdsm so we don't have to also include all of 
vdsm in the release tarballs.  That would make the guest agent an independent 
git repository and presumably project.

We can't ship a binary without including the source in the release.  The way we 
handle this for things that are external to QEMU (SeaBIOS, OpenBIOS, etc.) are 
git submodules.
