What are you talking about? Yes, of course I realize that recursing
over subprojects that are managed as separate git repositories
requires writing new code. That's why people have started to write
such code. They seem to think it's worth it.
Meanwhile others with different designs in mind have written other
tools. Use cases even overlap a little, so they can compete. That is
exactly as it should be.
