Before this we wouldn't know what do do with
refs/remotes/origin/master, now we'll look it up and discover that
it's a commit (or tag) and add a refs/{heads,tags}/ prefix to <dst> as

I'm bending over backwards and assuming that someone might have hacked
in remote tracking tags (see [1] for a discussion of how that can be
