I'd favor to just drop the --pre-order option and do this:
foreach [--recursive] [--post-order <command>] [<command>]
Me thinks pre-order is a sane default and we shouldn't add an
explicit option for that. And even with current Git you can
simply give no command at all and it'll show you all the
submodules it enters without doing anything in them, so we'd
only need to add the --post-order handling anyway (and fix the
synopsis by adding square brackets around the command while at
it, as that is optional).

I totally agree with that. First, adding --include-super does not
belong into the --post-order patch at all, as that is a different
topic (even though it belongs to the same use case Eric has). Also
the reason why we are thinking about adding the --post-order option
IMO cuts the other way for --include-super: It is so easy to do
that yourself I'm not convinced we should add an extra option to
foreach for that, especially as it has nothing to do with submodules.
So I think we should just drop --include-super.
