No, it already works.

One thing I'll mention is that a lot of people really do want to just build 
one application at a time, and so there's a lot of code I had to add to 
kdesvn-build to make it resolve the difference between SVN modules and 
subdirectories of modules in order to still try and Do The Right Thing.

We could group git modules together (at least in a build tool) just by 
defining some format for a logical grouping of git modules (it may even be 
possible in git directly going the submodule route, I haven't tried)
