A tag that points at a commit that is reachable from 'master' will
be followed, not just pointing _at_ 'master'. For example, when
your 'master' is a bit beyond v1.2 release, it is likely you will
also get v1.1 and v1.0 tags (if your release structure is such that
new release contains everything old releases had).
