Here is version 3 of a patch series to improve the way sha1_object_info_extended() behaves when it is passed a replaced object. The idea is to add a flags argument to it in the same way as what has been done to read_sha1_file().
This patch series was inspired by a sub thread in this discussion: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/238118 The only change compared to version 2 is that a few more tests have been added to patch 8/10, as suggested by Eric Sunchine. As in the previous version, patches 7/10, 8/10, 9/10 and 10/10 add a new --format option to list replace refs. 'short' (which is the default), 'medium' and 'full' formats are supported. This could be considered another patch series, but it is also related, because it uses sha1_object_info() and it fixes its use in builtin/replace.c by unsetting the global variable read_replace_refs in cmd_replace().
