Wow, I missed a bunch of emails on this.  Thanks for applying and for
writing tests!

This is as intended.  You wouldn't want subtree to modify commits that
occurred in the full repository for project A.  Furthermore, you
wouldn't have a "subproj:" commit in project A's standalone repo since
it wasn't a subproject at that time.

The --annotate option confused me because it was the reverse of what I
wanted.  As in your example, a typical use would be 'add a file to
subdir with message "subproj: add F3" ' to make it clear that you were
committing to the "subproj" part of a larger repository.  Then, when
splitting back out to subproj's main repository, you'd want to remove
the prefix.
