... from the submodule side of things this is big problem,
as the submodule is usually assumed at $GIT_DIR/modules/<name>
(I think we have not been strict in $GIT_DIR $GIT_COMMON_DIR
in the submodule code)

So the plan is to neither use
$GIT_COMMON_DIR/worktrees/X/modules/Y
$GIT_COMMON_DIR/modules/Y/worktrees/X
but to create a new third location at
$GIT_COMMON_DIR/common/modules
to which either new submodule worktrees
or superproject worktrees that happen to have this submodule
can point to?

So even when the user has never heard of worktrees, the internal structure
will be worktree oriented, the common dir in common/modules/Y and in
$GIT_DIR/modules/Y we could just have a worktree git dir?

yup, very sensible.

I like this approach very much.
