I suspect not passing on --jobs recursively like you do here is the
right thing to do, as that would give exponential growth of jobs with
recursion depth, which makes no sense to me.

A still unsolved issue is the unstructured output from the different
update jobs. It'll be hard (if not impossible) to see in what submodule
which update took place (or failed). I think we should have a solution
for that too (maybe one of those Heiko mentioned or something as simple
as implying "-q"?).

The new "--jobs" option should be documented under "OPTIONS", (and maybe
include that "--jobs 0" does the same as "--jobs" alone and that this is
not supported on all platforms).
