Right, I wouldn't expect it to, as the GIT submodule feature is one of the
weakest points of GIT.  When I generate the release tarballs I do so from
a full copy of the entire GIT tree, submodules and all, and walk the tree
down to each module (e.g. tdelibs, tdenetwork, amarok, etc.) to generate a
tarball of each module.
