I'm sharing objects between repositories by creating a bare
repository, adding the remotes for the repositories and fetch them in
this bare repo.
So for me, it makes sense to pass the "--reference" to the submodules
clone, if submodules remotes are added to this reference bare repo and
objects are already fetched (and I'm in this case, as I use a lot of
different projects that shares the same set of submodules).

Yes, this should make it, but I would have been more happy with a
single command !

Thanks Jens !
