My feeling is that there should be nothing to prevent you from
having a non-flat namespace in .git/refs/heads; i.e. we should
allow ".git/refs/heads/foo/bar".  Some of the existing tools may
be forgetting to call either "mkdir -p $(dirname $ref)" if they
are written in shell, or safe_create_leading_directories(ref) in
C, but I consider that is a bug.
