I think you misunderstood.  That is meant to illustrate what your
end users feed "fast-export". "fast-export" in turn expands that
into a revision range, which needs to happen anyway when it strips
:new-master from the positive end of the range to make the range

        master ^next ^refs/tags/v1.0 ^refs/tags/v1.1 ...
