Have we rejected the config approach?  I really liked the attribute of
not having to solve everything right away.  I'm getting scared that
we've forgotten that goal.

It mixes well with Stefan's idea of setting up a new .git/submodules/
directory.  We could require that everything in .git/submodules/ have
configuration (or that everything in that directory either have
configuration or be the result of a "very simple" transformation) and
that way, all ambiguity goes away.

Part of the definition of "very simple" could be that the submodule
name must consist of some whitelisted list of characters (including no
uppercase), for example.

Thanks,
Jonathan
