Based on your silence I too thought that you had agreed.

As discussed in that thread, it's not really the same thing as a refspec
used in push or fetch.  In those commands, the refspec specifies two
separable things:  what to transfer, and how to translate refs names
between the remote and local repositories.  IIUC, the fast-export
--refspec argument only specifies how to translate ref names, not what
gets transferred.

If my understanding is correct, then I agree with Junio and Peff that
--refmap is a better name.
