It actually could be avoided; we could pass in some extra args that let
check_refname_component_1 start checking after the part that we have
already checked.  I decided not to do this because I believe that
the average refname component is short, which means that the cost is not
too high and that it won't happen very often.  But I would be willing to
change this if you would like.
