Would "--no-symref" be a > better name? Definitely. Another disturbing thing is the design mistake that made this a bool. If it is useful to filter out symrefs, it would equally be useful to only show symrefs. --[no-]symbolic-refs does not capture the tristate-ness, and that is why I do not think this is good enough in the meantime, without causing us trouble carrying forward.
