I think I understand better now. The paths are relative paths to where
the script is invoked.
The script can cd down to the last subdir and interrogate the git module
for what it needs to know.
Hopefully it can find the section from there. This is what Alan was
trying to do with the url and sed.
That would be fairly flexible and easy. It could even be an absolute

The usage statement could be:

Usage: $basename [options] path...

Where "path" is a relative or absolute path to a git module.
