I guess we can postpone it until 3.0, though I currently think it is not a big
issue as it helps avoiding "bugs in your workflow".

On the other hand if you really want to push out the superproject without
the submodules, you need to adapt your behavior (i.e. set an option or
give a command line flag), and such breaking things we should delay
until 3.0.

I think I'll resend it with a proper commit message, such that we can just pick
it up when 3.0 comes around.
