I would keep the submodule--helper around as it is
and maybe even promote it to be a "plumbing" command.
Currently it is just an undocumented, internal command.

Once all commands in git-submodule.sh are translated to C
(when they all look similar to "git submodule init", which
is just a relay in the shell script), then we can make a full grown
builtin/submodule.c that calls the functions of the submodule--helper
directly in C.
