What do you think of .gitignore and .gitattributes?  Should they be
somewhere other than the filesystem as well?

I don't think Jens had any obligation to work on submodules and
nothing else for the last five years. ;-)

If you end up convincing others that your tools are worth working
on and those tools pleasantly take care of the same workflows that
submodules do, then I imagine people will be happy to migrate.

Speaking only for myself, I actually prefer the submodule UI, despite
not being thrilled with the
single-.gitmodules-file-at-the-root-of-the-worktree feature.  So I
will not be working on your proposed redesign, unless it evolves
enough to be as pleasant a UI as (the long proposed UI of) submodules.

Hope that helps,
