This doesn't do the job exactly though, it will list any tags whose
corresponding commit is either the named commit, or one of its parents.
So if we have a history (linear here to simplify, with parents to the left
and children to the right
a(v0.1) b c d(v1.1) e
Then git tag --contains x
will return v0.1 AND v1.1 if x is d or e
and v0.1 if x is any of a, b, or c.
Note that not ever commit has a tag.
