Here you go.

I'd be happy to hear ideas about superproject-branch-specific local
overrides to a hypothetical submodule.<name>.local-branch, in the
event that a developer doesn't like a default set in .gitmodules.  If
I could think of a way to do that, we could avoid this heuristic
approach, and make the local submodule.<name>.local-branch
vs. remote-tracking submodule.<name>.branch distinction more obvious.

It would also be nice if submodule.<name>.branch was just an initial
setup-time and detached-HEAD default.  If the submodule is on a branch
it would make more sense to use the checked-out branch's @{upstream}.
