I don't like the idea of silently stripping tags, so how about this?

Patch 1 adds a new 'warn-strip' mode to 'fast-export --signed-tags=...'
which strips tags but issues a warning when doing so.  Then we make
transport-helper use that before finally adding a new capability to
allow a remote helper to change '--signed-tags=warn-strip' into

John Keeping (3):
  fast-export: add --signed-tags=warn-strip mode
  transport-helper: pass --signed-tags=warn-strip to fast-export
  transport-helper: add 'signed-tags' capability
