[Development] Managing branches of Qt's git modules

just a query as to how people do bulk checkouts of different branches 
when working with the Qt git modules. It would be nice to be able to use 
git submodule foreach ... but this is a problem because not all modules 
use the same branching scheme.

So, what do people do to checkout all interesting modules to 5.7, 5.8, 
dev etc on Unix like systems and on Windows?

On *nix systems I've been getting away with a simple bash for loop. But 
on windows I find this painful but maybe that's just my unfamiliarity 
with windows batch scripts.
