submodules are completely not up to doing that.
they're kinda like a very limited sort of svn external, where you have to 
specify exactly what commit they point to (they can't track head or anything).

...unless it's possible to write a set of hooks that commit to the super-
module every time any of the submodules' repos gets a commit?
it sounds like it's got other problems, though, and makes it easy to make 
mistakes. and I feel like I'm forgetting something...
