I do not think it is simply not worth the complexity to selectively
disable it. If it is a regression, it is much better to simply
revert, if we can (it appears that cdfd9483 (Add new @ shortcut for

there may already be new stuff that depends on the "@").
For the upcoming release, I am very much tempted to revert it and

Stefano's use-case, where @/foo is turned into HEAD/foo, indicates a bug.
In my opinion, the topic, which touches a central part of ref handling,
was a bit hurried (and this report is a symptom of it), and I wouldn't
