Test assets crate

Download test assets, managing them outside of git.



git is nice for many purposes, but it stores the whole history. Once added, an asset will bloat your git repository even after you've removed it again, until drastic measures are taken like a rewrite of the history. Best don't even add it to git in the first place, and keep git to text files only.

Submodules can be used to manage this as well, but they are very hard to use and add lots of complexity to your users.

With this library, the only thing your users have to do is git clone.
