Fix archive format with -- on the command line

Giving --format from the command line, or using output file extention to
DWIM the output format, with a pathspec that is disambiguated with an
explicit double-dash on the command line, e.g.

git archive -o file --format=zip HEAD -- path
git archive -o file.zip HEAD -- path

didn't work correctly.

This was because the code reordered (when one was given) or added (when
the format was inferred) a --format argument at the end, effectively
making it to "archive HEAD -- path --format=zip", i.e. an extra pathspec
that is unlikely to match anything.

The command line argument list should always be "options, revs and then
paths", and we should set a good example by inserting the --format at the
beginning instead.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
