filter-branch: Big syntax change; support rewriting multiple refs
We used to take the first non-option argument as the name for the new branch. This syntax is not extensible to support rewriting more than just HEAD. Instead, we now have the following syntax: git filter-branch [<filter options>...] [<rev-list options>] All positive refs given in <rev-list options> are rewritten. Yes, in-place. If a ref was changed, the original head is stored in refs/original/$ref now, for your inspecting pleasure, in addition to the reflogs (since it is easier to inspect "git show-ref | grep original" than to inspect all the reflogs). This commit also adds the --force option to remove .git-rewrite/ and all refs from refs/original/ before filtering.
