fast-export: deal with tag objects that do not have a tagger

When no tagger was found (old Git produced tags like this),
no "tagger" line is printed (but this is incompatible with the current
git fast-import).

Alternatively, you can pass the option --fake-missing-tagger, forcing
fast-export to fake a tagger

Unspecified Tagger <no-tagger>

with a tag date of the beginning of (Unix) time in the case of a missing
tagger, so that fast-import is still able to import the result.

 incremental bidirectional exporting of the repository by keeping the
 marks the same across runs.
 
+--fake-missing-tagger::
+	Some old repositories have tags without a tagger.  The
+	fast-import protocol was pretty strict about that, and did not
+	allow that.  So fake a tagger to be able to fast-import the
+	output.
+
