'git branch' shows which branch you are currently on with an '*', but
'git for-each-ref' misses this feature.  So, extend its format with
%(HEAD) for the same effect.

Now you can use the following format in for-each-ref:

  %C(red)%(HEAD)%C(reset) %(refname:short)

to display a red asterisk next to the current ref.

 In addition to the above, for commit and tag objects, the header
 field names (`tree`, `parent`, `object`, `type`, and `tag`) can
 be used to specify the value in the header field.
