"branches" are by definition what are in refs/heads/ hierarchy, so 

  Allow @additional_branch_refs configuration variable to tell
  gitweb to show refs from additional hierarchies in addition to
  branches in the list-of-branches view.

would be more appropriate and sufficient.

I was primarily worried about metacharacters in the specified
strings getting in the way of regexp matches the new code allows on
them, but that has been resolved with the use of \Q..\E; if that
automatic deduping is done, I do not immediately see any remaining
issues in the latest round of the patch.
