Since the link object is rooted to the tree, it's impossible to have
anything but a working copy in the link directory.  How can I have a
non-git-worktree link directory without breaking checkout?  I think
that making it too generic will make the entire submodule experience
suffer, because the implementation must be coded according to the
lowest-common-denominator.  This is the mistake that the tool mr
makes: since it's so generic, it can't provide very powerful
functionality specifically for git repositories.

I'll try to think of something else.
