I agree it should not be part of this commit, but I've often found
myself in need of an --include-super switch.   To me,
git-submodule-foreach means "visit all my .git repos in this project
and execute $cmd".  It's a pity that the super-project is considered a
second-class citizen in this regard.

I have to do this sometimes:

   ${cmd} && git submodule foreach --recursive '${cmd}'

I often forget the first part in scripts, though, and I've seen others
do it too.  I usually create a function for it in git-heavy scripts.

In a shell, it usually goes like this:

   git submodule foreach --recursive '${cmd}'

It'd be easier if I could just include a switch for this, and maybe
even create an alias for it.  But maybe this is different command
