Unless you decide to go with the proposed approach of Trevor, where
"submodule.<name>.branch" set means attached (if it's not changed:
this thread is quite hard to follow...). To this end, Junio could sync
with more "long-timers" (Heiko?) submodule users/devs to understand if
this breaks too much or not.
