And here comes the patch for the git-module.

This patch enables the modules to use every 'checkoutable' branch/tag/commit 
their sources. Also the modules can use submodules. Submodules are external 
repositories embedded (but independely managed) in their source-tree. [1]

To use it, just append a colon (":") and the ref, like this (from the DETAILS 
of the soon to be commited module "cgit", using a tag):


When the "-git" modules would be altered as this one, a simple call of
"lin -w BRANCH/TAG/COMMIT MODULE" would be sufficient to install the
desired flavour.

Additionally, I corrected a few typos.
