Looks good.  Thanks.  More below regarding the codepaths to these.

Looking at the callers of this, it should be used by «git checkout <TAB>» (one
of the alternatives is "basenames" of remote branches), refspecs in «git push
$remote …», etc; but an easier way to test this would be to run
    compdef __git_describe_commit f
    f <TAB>

This function completes hashes of commits, as output by `git log --pretty=%h`.
It's used by _git-send-email.  (I'm surprised that it isn't used by
_git-format-patch; those two commands are very similar.)

This is used by «git commit --fixup=<TAB>».
