for-each-ref: skip and warn about broken ref names
Print a warning message for any bad ref names we find in the repo and skip them so callers don't have to deal with parsing them. It might be useful in the future to have a flag where we would not skip these refs for those callers that want to and are prepared (for example by using a --format argument with %0 as a delimiter after the ref name).
