tag, branch, for-each-ref: add --ignore-case for sorting and filtering
This options makes sorting ignore case, which is great when you have branches named bug-12-do-something, Bug-12-do-some-more and BUG-12-do-what and want to group them together. Sorting externally may not be an option because we lose coloring and column layout from git-branch and git-tag. The same could be said for filtering, but it's probably less important because you can always go with the ugly pattern [bB][uU][gG]-* if you're desperate. You can't have case-sensitive filtering and case-insensitive sorting (or the other way around) with this though. For branch and tag, that should be no problem. for-each-ref, as a plumbing, might want finer control. But we can always add --{filter,sort}-ignore-case when there is a need for it.
