An easy way to list everything in refs/notes/ is

  git for-each-ref refs/notes/

but that of course won't figure out if you have more notes e.g. in
refs/remotes/origin/notes/* or some such.  I think this more general
problem can be solved only by heuristics, since the notes trees are
actually "just trees" -- the only distinction is that they have fairly
funny filenames in them.
