+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #19333 +++

If --tags is given at the end of the command line, it doesn't work:

$ git ls-remote --tags git://repo.or.cz/git.git | head

$ git ls-remote git://repo.or.cz/git.git --tags | head

This behavior breaks the expectations, because in other git subroutines, it's
possible to give an option at the end, for example "git push ... --tags".
