I would prefer to using some git command compared to 'ls -l
.git/refs/heads/'. In my opinion there is a need for this command and
it should be included.

But my immediate concern was that there is already 'git branch'
command and 'git branches' is too similar. I think they should be
merged. I have a patch coming up.
