Thanks, I will try that as well.  Strange it works on command line but not 
STDOUT though.

If you are asking for tags, which does not begin with a caret "^", perhaps drop

The pattern is supposed to be wildmatch pattern, so it is already left 
anchored, e.g. --decorate-refs=ag* won't find any tag.
