Yeah, this is idiotic.

The remote helper infrastructure is certainly being unhelpful here.  I
wonder if transport-helper should just pass --signed-tag=strip and be
done with it (leaving open the possibility of a capability to switch
to --signed-tag=verbatim when someone wants to teach the testgit
helper to support that).  What do you think?
