I do not understand the above excuse. for-each-ref takes a
callback data pointer exactly because it wants you to be able to
extend what data the callback function gets without changing its
signature. builtin/tag.c::verify_tag() is a helper static to the
file--why should it be "burdensome" to change it to fit your needs?
Adding technical debt by going backwards is never a good idea
especially done to add a new feature that is not desperately needed.
