I think in general we've been moving "git remote" away from actually
interacting with the other side, and pushing those features into "git
fetch". These days you can use "git fetch --prune --all" to do what you

Note that this isn't _exactly_ the same thing. Fetch's prune will do a
normal fetch and _also_ prune. There is no way to say "just prune, but
do not update existing refs". If that detail is important, I think I'd
rather see the feature go the other way from your request: teach
git-fetch a "--prune-only" mode.
