I think this _is_ wrong; it talks about the NULL termination of the
ref_rev_parse_rules array, not each string that is an element of
the array being NUL terminated.
Output from "git grep -e refname_match -e ref_rev_parse_rules"
suggests me that we actually could make ref_rev_parse_rules a
file-scope static to refs.c, remove its NULL termination and convert
all the iterators of the array to use ARRAY_SIZE() on it, after
dropping the third parameter to refname_match(). That way, we do
not have to count them first here.
But that is obviously a separate topic.
