I've had no problem dealing with the numeric modules. The output of
'git config -f .gitmodules -l' contains pretty much everything you
need to know. You can get a list of submodule paths using:

git config -f $BOOST_ROOT/.gitmodules -l | sed -n

If you're trying to find modules by walking the filesystem, you'll
just create problems for yourself.

FWIW I think most of what you've written about is a waste of time, but
knock yourself out.
