This is a reasonably frequent source of user confusion, so we'd do well to sort it out.

Just to note: while this is an inconvenience for most projects, it's an outright blocker if one is trying to build an external snap based on an upstream that uses submodules identified with `git://` URLs. See e.g.:

npm has a super ugly way to work this around:

We have no way to replace the global url in build.snapcraft.io before the pull, so this also seems to be a blocker for many nodejs snaps.
