They did, but they were not substituting the branches.

Yeah, we could break, but I would prefer the break to happen naturally
when in the for loop check.

Yeap.

The rest of the code is not executed, there's no need if @{-N}
evaluates to a SHA-1. There's no ref to dwim, and there's no reflog
anyway. We just fetch the SHA-1 and return.

Fortunately we are not changing the code this time, which is the best
way to make sure that the behavior doesn't change.

It took me a long time to play with alternatives and find a clean
solution with minimal changes that is easy to understand, but I think
this code does the trick.

Cheers.
