I couldn't think of anything better to do.... There is no error return
flow, so just... leave it as is maybe?

I can't check for a specific version here because there is no
mechanism to pass in the value we'd check it in... Maybe I need a
separate function for that to check the specific sha1 instead of using
nullsha1? But.. no I don't think that makes sense, we use the current
working tree to get the submodule and then lookup old references in
it... but if we checked an old tree it might be in the wrong path
which does us no good because the name no longer matches? Hmmm

Sure, but if it doesn't exist we just fail.. so what should I put in
the string? just leave it empty? The function doesn't have an error
return at the moment.
