Recursive pull
This command executes a git-pull and then updates all submodules.
Orphaned submodule directories are removed if they are clean. The
HEADs of submodules are attached if necessary and possible.
Executes git-rfetch to download possibly existing updates for
git rpull ...
...: same arguments as git pull

## check for modified content and uncommitted changes
git check-clean --ignore-submodules=untracked --unstaged --uncommitted --unmerged || exit 1
## check for untracked files
if ! git check-clean --untracked --unstaged --exit-code; then
cat >&2 <<EOF
Error: Untracked files in submodules. Add them to .gitignore
in the respective submodules or remove them.
Use "git status" to see where they are.

if [[ "$unpushed" != "" ]]; then
cat >&2 <<EOF
Error: Unpushed commits in submodules.
Try "git rpush" followed by another "git rpull". If that fails,
push them one-by-one before pulling again.
This safety measure ensures that no commits get lost.
