Git.pm: Implement options for the command interface
This gives the user a way to easily pass options to the command routines. Currently only the STDERR option is implemented and can be used to adjust what shall be done with error output of the called command (most usefully, it can be used to silence it).

Execute the given Git C<COMMAND> (specify it without the 'git-'
prefix), optionally with the specified extra C<ARGUMENTS>.
+The second more elaborate form can be used if you want to further adjust
+the command execution. Currently, only one option is supported:
+
+B<STDERR> - How to deal with the command's error output. By default (C<undef>)
+it is delivered to the caller's C<STDERR>. A false value (0 or '') will cause
+it to be thrown away. If you want to process it, you can get it in a filehandle
+you specify, but you must be extremely careful; if the error output is not
+very short and you want to read it in the same process as where you called
+C<command()>, you are set up for a nice deadlock!
+
The method can be called without any instance or on a specified Git repository
(in that case the command will be run in the repository context).
