I am not in _your_ list, but I do use subrepos daily. Pretty much
every project that uses mercurial in my company uses subrepos.

If you want I could give you a more detailed account of how we use
them, which problems we have faced and the things that we miss the
most (hint: an easier way to "rewrite" subrepo paths in old revisions;
creating read-only subrepos; and having an easier way to pull
from/push to the "canonical" subrepo reference when using relative
subrepo paths).
