Yeah, good idea. I might be misremembering some complications, but we
can probably do it with:

  1. Teach the client to send an "advertise-symrefs" flag before the ref

  2. Teach the server to include symrefs in the ref advertisement; we
     can invent a new syntax because we know the client has asked for

That does not have to come immediately, though. Done correctly,
upload-pack2 is not about implementing the fnmatch feature, but allowing
arbitrary capability strings from the client before the ref
advertisement starts. So this just becomes an extension that we can add
and advertise during that new phase.
