This approach of running the test suite twice was only "exploratory",
see the script in 10/10: it was never meant as a the final mechanism.

That's also why the FIXME patches do not have a sign-off.

As I tried to comment above a final version could just
replace the references to '.gitmodules' with some fixed non-default
value, provided that the same value is passed to git via

If the tests pass with a custom value they'll pass with the default
'.gitmodules' one which is a particular case.
