I concur: adding a change that is hidden from the user during
the process is not a good idea.

I suspect "git add" and "git commit -a" have to learn the
--ignore-submodules option anyway if we go that route. There
are points in time (e.g. releasing a new version or having run
an expansive test successfully) where some users want to update
the submodules that are normally ignored to record the exact
versions involved.
