Well, I pushed it out, although I do agree that we should be
able to give anything get_sha()-able on the source side of the
push.  Probably a revised version should have the following
semantics:

    $ git-send-pack [--all] <remote> [<ref>...]

 - When no <ref> is specified:

   - with '--all', it is the same as specifying the full refs/*
     path for all local refs;

   - without '--all', it is the same as specifying the full
     refs/* path for refs that exist on both ends;

 - When one or more <ref>s are specified:

   - a single token <ref> (i.e. no colon) must be a pattern that
     tail-matches refs/* path for an existing local ref.  It is
     an error for the pattern to match no local ref, or more
     than one local refs.  The matching ref is pushed to the
     remote end under the same name.

   - <src>:<dst> can have different cases.  <src> is first tried
     as the tail-matching pattern for refs/* path.

     - If more than one matches are found, it is an error.

     - If one match is found, <dst> must either match no remote
       ref and start with "refs/", or match exactly one remote
       ref.  That remote ref is updated with the sha1 value
       obtained by the <src> sha1.

     - If no match is found, it is given to get_extended_sha1();
       it is an error if get_extended_sha1() does not find an
       object name.  If it succeeds, <dst> must either match
       no remote ref and start with "refs/" or match exactly
       one remote ref.  That remote ref is updated with the sha1
       value.
