This has made me realize that I can get the behavior I need by using `%(if)`.

Exclude symrefs:

Only symrefs:

However, this still prints an empty line for each ref that does not match the
condition. This can be cleaned up by piping through `grep .`, but what would
you think of adding a new optional flag to git-for-each-ref to prevent it from
printing empty expanded format strings?
