Thanks for digging.

Strictly speaking, I think this was not even a transition (rather,
there was no way to give a submodule a name that is different from
its path).  In any version of git whose git-submodule.sh has
module_name helper function, the path and the name were conceptually
two different things, and we should have been using the name, not
path, throughout.
