I really was hoping git-subtree would be completely obsoleted by
git-submodule by now, but... it hasn't been, so... no objections on
this end.

The gerrit team (eg. Stefan Beller) has been doing some really great
stuff to make submodules more usable by helping with relative
submodule links and by auto-updating links in supermodules at the
right times.  Unfortunately doing that requires help from the server
side, which kind of messes up decentralization and so doesn't solve
the problem in the general case.

I really wish there were a good answer, but I don't know what it is.
I do know that lots of people seem to at least be happy using
git-subtree, and would be even happier if it were installed
automatically with git.

Have fun,
