tag: change --point-at to default to HEAD
Change the --points-at option to default to HEAD for consistency with its siblings --contains, --merged etc. which default to HEAD. Previously we'd get: $ git tag --points-at 2>&1 | head -n 1 error: option `points-at' requires a value This changes behavior added in commit ae7706b9ac (tag: add --points-at list option, 2012-02-08).
