The level of annoyance is quite different.

When I, as a newcomer of a given repo, do "git tag" I know I'm looking
at a lot of "not current" information. On the contrary, when I do "git
branch" I start trying figure out what each branch means. Having
around a lot of no longer used branches is very annoying in that
