Right, and me thinks that would warrant a --force option for deinit
to do that even if the submodule contains local changes (which would
make deinit fail otherwise). Additionally Michael and Marc spoke up
that they would rather have a --all option to deinit all initialized
submodules and "git submodule deinit" without any arguments should
just produce a usage message. As I saw no voices against it that'll
be part of the next iteration too.
