I'm not quite sure I agree, or rather we may be talking about two
different things or I'm misinterpreting the patches.  From these patches
it seems like 'submodule_config' that you are refering to is not the
actual submodule configuration but rather some options that are stored
in .git/config or other various config locations (home, system, etc).
What would need to be part of the repository object (and is in my WIP
that I'll hopefully send out so i can get some feedback) would be the
submodule_cache which is the internal representation of a repository's
.gitmodules files.
