I've been thinking about that for a while, when I started using submodules. In 
the end, I concluded, that what I really want to see in the commit message, is 
something similar to $(git shortlog $OLD_SHA1..$NEW_SHA1).

I've scripted that and taught my CI-Server to do it automatically, if 
possible. So most of the time, I really don't want an "automatically crafted 
commit" whenever something causes the tip of a submodule to be at a new SHA1.

Just my $.02, though.
