Does "some commands" above refer to anything that uses
__git_complete_remote_or_refspec, or is the set of commands larger
than that?

I am wondering if it is safer to introduce a new "local" variable
that is set by the caller of __git_complete_remote_or_refspec and
inspected by __git_complete_remote_or_refspec (instead of words[1])
to communiate the real name of the git subcommand being completed,
without touching words[] in place.

That way, we wouldn't have to worry about all the other references
of words[c], words[i], words[CURRENT] etc. in the script seeing the
word that the end-user did not type and did not actually appear on
the command line.

But perhaps we muck with the contents of words[] in a similar way in
many different places in the existing completion code often enough
that such an attempt not to touch the words[] array does not buy us
much safety anyway.  I didn't check (and that is why I am asking
with "I am wondering...").

Thanks, will queue.
