Add an assert to make it more obvious that we were effectively
hardcoding OBJ_TAG in sort_ambiguous() as "4".

I wrote this code in 5cc044e0257 (get_short_oid: sort ambiguous
objects by type, then SHA-1, 2018-05-10), there was already a comment
about this magic, but let's make sure that someone doing a potential
reordering of "enum object_type" in the future would notice it
breaking this function (and probably a bunch of other things...).
