git-series doesn't use the git-submodule command at all, nor does it
construct series trees using git-add or any other git command-line tool;
it constructs gitlinks directly. Most of the time, it doesn't even make
sense to `git checkout` a series branch. Modifying commands like git-add
and similar to automatically manage .gitmodules won't cause any issue at
all, as long as git itself doesn't start rejecting or complaining about
repositories that have gitlinks without a .gitmodules file.
