So basically, 'git pull' for supermodule does 'git fetch' for
submodules? Not quite intuitive, but it can speed up things a little.

What do you do when you want to update the repository when you have
local changes? 'git submodule update' would attempt to roll back
mymodule to some detached revision, wouldn't it?
