Various remote helper capabilities and commands were not
documented, in particular 'export', or documented in a misleading
way (e.g. 'for-push' was listed as a ref attribute understood by
git, which is not the case). This patch series changes that, and
also address some other things in the remote helper documentation
that I found jarring when reading through it.

Note that the description of export and (im|ex)port-marks probably can be
improved, and I hope that somebody who knows more about them
than me and/or is better at writing documentation will do just that.
But I felt it was better to provide something than to do nothing
and only complain, as I did previously on this subject ;-).
