you are right...
that would means that ./g remain but is adapted to update the
appropriate submodules based on bin/git-repos

I could each ./g pull to update the submodules after pulling core...
and other user-friendly stuff ...
I need to play a bit more with it

only to the extent that you care for that commit to be visible in core...
practically if you are going to push a patch series on binfilter for
instance, there is no reason to upgrade core at every commits.

but yes you are right it is not only 'merge'
