Git Question

git: how to merge commits from a remote to a different path?

I have a git repository with remote foo.

foo is a web app, is contains some files and dirs directly in its root:

Rakefile
app
...
public
script


My main git repository is a larger system which comprises this web app. I want to pull the commits from foo, but I need the files to reside inside the
web
dir. So they should become
web/app
,
web/public
, etc.

I don't want to use foo as a submodule. I want to merge foo into the main repository and then get rid of it.
