From: Jacob Keller <jacob.keller@gmail.com>

The __git_complete_refs uses the "--track" option to specify when to
enable listing of unique remote branches which are used by the DWIM
logic of git checkout and git switch.

Using the term '--track' here is confusing because the git commands
themselves have '--track' as an argument. Additionally, the completion
logic for _git_switch also checks for --track. Keeping the meaning of
track_opt and --track for __git_complete_refs straight from the --track
git switch and git checkout option is difficult when reading this code.

Use the option '--dwim' instead, indicating this is about enabling or
disabling logic related to DWIM mode. Also rename the local variable
track_opt to dwim_opt to further reduce the confusion when reading the
completion code for _git_switch.

Because it is plausible for users to have developed their own
completions which rely on __git_complete_ref, keep --track as a synonym
for --dwim, even though we no longer use it in any of the core git
completion logic. Add a comment explaining why it remains as an
alternative spelling for --dwim.
