[emily] How does the content of refs/prefetch/* get used?
[jrnieder] How does the content of refs/prefetch/* get cleaned up?
[jonathantan] refs/prefetch/* will get used in negotiation so it is
useful to keep these.

[jrnieder] this is what cleans up refs/prefetch/* later :)

[jonathantan] It would be good to pass --recurse-submodules=no.
[jrnieder] Since we are specifying the refmap here, if we were to
recurse into submodules, we'd have to be careful about making sure
refmap gets propagated correctly.

[jrnieder] Since this is a callback that happens for each remote, maybe
this should be named to indicate it only fills one remote at a time
instead. Nit :)

Is there a reason not to use for_each_string_list_item() instead? This
would be more brief and also easier to read (less thinking about what
the loop is doing).

[jrnieder] Nit: Is there a sort order for these? Should we establish an order
early on (e.g. alphabetical)?

[jrnieder] In practice, why were all the \\ needed? Trying to figure out
where Git is using a shell that would need the * escaped and finding it
hard to reason about.

[jrnieder] Should we use test_cmp_rev instead to make compatible with
packed-refs?

[jonathantan] Why do we use 'git log' to check? I'm a little confused
about what's going on; if you just want to check that the refs are
present you could use 'git rev-parse' instead?
