with rust's git repo -- located at
https://github.com/rust-lang/rust.git -- we see odd results from
git-describe for the latest tag.

$ git rev-parse HEAD

$ git describe  --debug
searching to describe HEAD

 annotated      15230 0.11.0
traversed 15232 commits

Somehow it reports that 0.11.0 is missing tons of commits that are in
HEAD. rev-list disagrees with this:

$ git rev-list 0.11.0.. | wc -l

The `SEARCH STRATEGY` section of the manpage says that the commit
numbers for describe and rev-list should match, which is not the case
