In general, I think it could take a flag parameter from its caller. But
its caller comes indirectly from for_each_tag_name(), which isn't a
regular ref-iterator. It would probably need to switch to using
read_ref_full() to get the flags.

Yeah, I think that would work, although:

  - there's another caller in cmd_verify_tag() which seems to just pass
    whatever was on the command line. It doesn't even resolve the ref
    itself!

  - I suspect people may be relying on the current behavior. The
    original was added to be able to compare the internal tagname to the
    refname. I.e., that:

      git tag -v --format='%(refname) %(tag)' foo

    would show "foo foo". Now that _should_ be "%(refname:strip=2)", I
    think, but we'd probably be breaking scripts. OTOH, it really feels
    like _not_ handing over a real, fully-qualified refname to the
    ref-filter code will mean other things are broken (e.g.,
    ATOM_UPSTREAM is assuming we have a fully-qualified ref).

    I think a backwards-compatible way of fixing it would be to have
    this call hand over the full refname to the ref-filter code, but
    tell it that %(refname) should default to strip=2. And then anybody
    who wants the full name can use %(refname:strip=0).

    It makes the behavior confusing and quirky, but we can't avoid that
    without breaking compatibility.
