You could easily wrap that into a helper script, no?
Sure. But why maintain my own helper script if I can edit git-submodules.sh?

This way I can save them time too. -- This email may be signed or encrypted with GnuPG (http://www.gnupg.org). For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Good_Privacy
