git-remote: list branches in vertical lists
Previously, branches were listed on a single line in each section. But if there are many branches, then horizontal, line-wrapped lists are very inconvenient to scan for a human. This makes the lists vertical, i.e one branch per line is printed. Since "git remote" is porcelain, we can easily make this backwards-incompatible change.
