Good point, although most of the tweaks I've seen on GitHub seem to omit theos and assume the user can find and install it.

I'm not a tremendous fan of submodules but this is a good use case for one; I'll add theos as a submodule and push a commit in a second.

Edit: Done, but users have to manually download ldid (presumably due to licensing issues) anyway.

Thank you for the feedback and advice!

Users have to manually download ldid only because I aspire to keep Theos a binary-free distribution: it's totally cross-platform where you have GNU make and bash (and, for Logos, perl).

I guess it is a matter of personal preference, but I see it as "why not?", especially because the THEOS environment variable is respected.
