Then why does it say:
     fatal: -a and -r options to 'git branch' do not make sense with a 
branch name

when there is no `-a` given?

The initial expectation was that a simple "--remote <pattern>" would be 
all that was required to list the rtbs with the sub-pattern (see fatal 
above, which is maybe how Ævar got his -a formulation). But it now 
appears that we/I need the --list, to allow a pattern, and either -a, or 
-r, to include the rtbs in the list.

So ultimately, yes, to just get the rtbs of a specific remote one needs 
your "branch --remote --list `<remote>/*' "formulation.
