No, unfortunately I won't be there (had too much travel for the year

Great. We've been doing quite a bit of work on build system modules
on our side. You may want to check/sync with the latest changes in
the libbuild2-hello module (which, BTW, has moved):

Sorry, I meant illegal as in build2 not allowing package nesting.

I still think it's a good idea to do this. Perhaps keep it in the same
repository but just next to libbuild2-yacc and libbuild2-yacc-tests?
