It should. All new code recursing into submodules should not use
--recursive but always --recurse-submodules, as --recursive means
different things for different commands (the only exception being
"git submodule", as --recursive is obvious here, and "git clone"
for backward compatibility reasons).

But I really like what these patches are aiming at.
