I expect performance benefit in script update_all_submodules, through reduced 
calls submodule init and update. But that is not for normal users. In all 
scripts some performance benefits can bring a reduction of calls reset, 
clean, commit, and push. But I did not carry out any measurements.

switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean script would probably not have a 
problem with access as anonymous user. If the proposed automatic detection 
gituser will suit everyone, it could be a question to gituser from scripts 
abolished entirely.

Support for branches and easily switch between them was the main reason for me 
to modify the scripts. I have made modifications general - scripts are 
independent on the branch. Once the preparatory v3.5.13-sru branch on the 
meta-project 'tde' will suffice:

git checkout v3.5.13-sru && switch_all_submodules_to_head_and_clean

Instead of v3.5.13-sru will then be possible to enter the name of any branch - 
for example master ;)
