`git push r --tags` pushes only tags, and `git fetch r --tags` only
fetched tags.

Starting from 1.9.0, `git fetch r --tags`, according to the release
summary, changed to "tags and other things".

That's the asymmetric change I find. It is, as you say,
undesirable to have `git push r --tags` push more than tags, which
is why I am objecting (acknowledging it's after-the-fact) that
the change to git-fetch was so-so.

A new option `git fetch r --only-tags` could remedy the
hard-to-remember syntax `git fetch r "refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*"`,
though it would not fix the asymmetry.
