Ah, nice to see I'm not alone in looking at this.  I was actually
leaning towards reporting it against git(-submodule) itself; it
strikes me as odd that there is no GIT_SUBMODULE environment variable
I can set to control where stuff is recorded.  It strikes me as a more
obvious use case than the funky, but oh so useful, detachment that
GIT_DIR and GIT_WORK_TREE allows :)
