[PATCH] fetch/pull: short-hand notation for remote repositories.
Since pull and fetch are done often against the same remote repository repeatedly, keeping the URL to pull from along with the name of the head to use in $GIT_DIR/branches/$name makes a lot of sense. Adopt that convention from Cogito, and try to be compatible when possible; storing a partial URL and completing it with a trailing path may not be understood by Cogito. While we are at it, fix pulling a tag. Earlier, we updated only refs/tags/$tag without updating FETCH_HEAD, and called resolve-script using a stale (or absent) FETCH_HEAD.
