Unfortunately, using "refs/remotes/%1/%*" instead of "refs/remotes/%*"
breaks a number of git-svn tests which puts refs directly within
refs/remotes/, and then does things like "git reset --hard trunk"
(expecting trunk -> refs/remotes/trunk, which the refs/remotes/%1/%*
doesn't match).

I don't know if putting refs directly within refs/remotes/ is
something that git-svn does by default (which would prevent us from
changing "refs/remotes/%*" to "refs/remotes/%1/%*"), or whether it is
specific to the tests (in which case we should fix the tests).

Also, there might be too many other users of refs directly within
refs/remotes/ that expect "foo_without_slash" to expand to
"refs/remotes/foo_without_slash", which would prevent us from doing
this change.
