Really?  Would "git log --expand master" be useful?

I'd have to say that a DWIM that the user needs to diagnose with
such a "feature" is a total failure.  Can't we fix that root cause

That is, for a name, e.g. "refs/remotes/origin/notes/commit" (the
original example in [PATCH 0/2]) or "commit" (the usual):

 - If it is already a ref, just use that (e.g. use that stuff in the
   refs/remotes/ hierarchy); or

 - If it is not, prefix refs/notes/ to it.

or something?
