Are there any other submodule options that could be useful passing
from git-clone as well? What I'm getting at is, if there are multiple
of them, perhaps we need a different/generic approach than introducing
a bunch of --<something>-submodules. But of course if --remote is the
only useful one left, then it's moot.
