   like the recently changed builtin-tag.c and the upcoming
   builtin-reset.c, and perhaps also from builtin-fetch--tool.c.

This should go into the commit message.

Should this not be "void"?  And should it not use update_ref_or_error()?

Otherwise I like it.

It should not use *_error() directly because then it would print two error 
messages in a row.

Well, my idea was to let _error() print the message, and just die().

How do you avoid that die() prints an error, too?

Make a generic function that takes a function pointer argument, then
call it with die or error as appropriate.

This makes me wonder three things:

 - Why doesn't "or_error" side allow "flags" as "or_die" one?
   Could the 'quiet' option become part of "flags" perhaps?

 - They look quite similar.  Is it a good idea to refactor them
   further, or they are so small it does not matter?

 - Why isn't lock released with unlock_ref()?

I saw that the only code that needed the flags was the
builtin-update-ref.c, and it also needed to die(). The
others I saw only want that parameter set to 0.
builtin-tag.c was doing die() also, not using flags, though.

I would like to know how to refactor it, however the code I saw
sometimes needs to call die(), others to error() and others
need to get only a value of success or not.

The function die() returns 128 and terminates the program,
prepending "fatal: " in the message, while error() doesn't exit
and prepend "error: ", so they were very different and I
resolved to separate them.

Another option is returning different error codes, so
the caller could decide what to output in each case, but
I thought that these functions were only useful to unify those
instructions with those error messages for this common
operation that many builtins use, specially when they come
from scripts who call to "git update-ref".

>  - Why isn't lock released with unlock_ref()?

I inspected this some weeks ago, and I finally came to think
that it is released in the write_ref_sha1 call after the lock.
But the code was complex, can someone confirm this?

Ok, when other built-ins start using these functions, they might
want to pass different flags, but it is easy enough for us to
extend the interface later.

Fair enough.

Ah, that's right!
