I guess that you mean "instead of dying, automatically call absorb
and (possibly) warn"?  That sounds like a sensible improvement.

This changes the message text by removing () around "use ... history",
which I do not think you intended to do.

What is this if statement doing here?  It does not make sense,
especially without an 'else' clause on the other side, at least to
me.

At this point in the flow, the code has already determined that path
is a directory above before starting to check if it has ".git/"
immediately below it, or trying to run "git rm" in the dry run mode
to see if it yields an error, so at this point lstat() should
succeed (and would say it is a directory).  I would sort-of
understand it if this "if()" has an "else" clause to act on an
error, but that is not something the original does not do, so I am
not sure if it belongs to a "rewrite to C" patch.

If the reason is "avoid losing the original directory mode by
removing and recreating", then you should be able to do much better
by using REMOVE_DIR_KEEP_TOPLEVEL in the above "do we still have a
directory?  if so get rid of working tree contents" thing.  And the
call to mkdir() below can be placed in the else clause of that
check, i.e. "the user has removed the directory as well, but there
should be an empty directory even for a de-initialized submodule"
side of this.

That of course does not have to be part of "rewrite to C" patch.  In
fact, it probably should come as a follow-up improvement after the
dust settles.

Shouldn't these two checks come before we call module_list_compute()?
