We have several different issues around and the moment and I'm worried
some cases are going to get lost. We really need a list of them along
with the planed fix. As I see it we have:

a) conflicting SRCREV and tag/rev url parameters

Plan: bb.error on this case asking the user to say what they want

b) dereferencing of tags when checking existance of commits

Plan: Add ^{} to ls-remote command to allow dereferencing

c) tags may get resolved to incorrect tags in sub directories

Plan: Need to anchor tag/branch search expression

What else are we missing?

Ideally we could do with examples of these in the fetcher test code
