Support updating git submodules

See original GitHub issue

I think it would be a useful feature support for git submodules in nbgitpuller.

The support I had in mind was simply calling git submodule init and then git submodule update when updating a repo.

When a repo is updated which uses git submodules, these functions will most likely need to be called. Expecting the not-tech-savvy user to call these functions will cause confusion.

Yes, I can take on this PR. Not sure when I can do it though.

I am also interested in this feature.

git submodule update has three different modes: --merge, --rebase, --checkout.

I am not sure which one we should use. @yuvipanda what do you think? Which one is closest to nbgitpullers strategy?
