I can't see anything wrong with it (but didn't have the time to
test it). On my todo list (but *way* down) is the task to replace
the call to "git submodule summary --for-status ..." in
wt_status_print_submodule_summary() with a call to "git diff
--submodule" (and - at least in the long term - rip out the
--for-status option from the submodule script). Maybe now is a
good time for someone else to tackle that? (especially as the new
strbuf_commented_add*() functions should make that rather easy)
