But this also means that if I were for example to use git-for-each-ref
in gitweb, I couldn't _test_ if it works. Ah, well, if you can live with
PATCH/RFC... But I'd rather wait for git-for-each-ref in _released_ version
of git. 

On the other side as you said the true test for new core stuff is to use
it. Perhaps someone who runs 'master' or 'next' version of git...
