Yes, I suspect that would improve things quite a bit in a repository
where it added a new submodule by filling the gap between the time
when a gitlink is added and an entry in .gitmodules is added.  The
latter needs to happen if the result of the work done in that
repository is pushed out elsewhere---otherwise it won't usable by
other people.
