Interesting.  'git log -g' is good for getting that information
locally, but the protocol doesn't have a way to get it from a remote
server so you have to ssh in.  Ronnie (cc-ed) and I were talking
recently about whether it would make sense to update git protocol to
have a way to get at the remote reflogs more easily --- would that be
useful to you?

The reflog on the server (if enabled) records this.

The local reflog ('git log -g <branch>') records this.

Ronnie's recent ref-transaction code does this.
