Note that there is 3c548de378 (Merge branch 'sb/submodule-blanket-recursive',
2017-06-13), which adds recursing into submodules to a couple of commands.

clone is not one of them, because at that time I thought you'd want to select
explicitly at clone time which submodules you want. Unlike most other commands
that can recurse into submodules, clone supports a pathspec for the recurse
parameter, such that you can express a fine grained selection of submodules
that you are interested in.

I wonder if submodule.recurse is set if we'd just want to recurse into
all submodules for clone? That may have negative consequences though
as people may have forgotten that they set that config a long time ago and then
are surprised to get so many submodules.
