Introduce notation "ref^{type}".

Existing "tagname^0" notation means "dereference tag zero or more
times until you cannot dereference it anymore, and make sure it is a
commit -- otherwise barf". But tags do not necessarily reference
commit objects.

This commit introduces a bit more generalized notation, "ref^{type}".
Existing "ref^0" is a shorthand for "ref^{commit}". If the type
is empty, it just dereferences tags until it hits a non-tag object.

With this, "git-rev-parse --verify 'junio-gpg-pub^{}'" shows the blob
object name -- there is no need to manually read the tag object and
find out the object name anymore.

"git-rev-parse --verify 'HEAD^{tree}'" can be used to find out the
tree object name of the HEAD commit.
