I will post a quick patch, just to get the idea.

Well, perhaps is not so hard, we already have

Git::getAllRefNames(uint mask, bool onlyLoaded)

that seems to fit. First parameter 'mask' could have following or-ed flags:

	enum RefType {
		TAG        = 1,
		BRANCH     = 2,
		REF        = 16,
		APPLIED    = 32,
		UN_APPLIED = 64,
		ANY_REF    = 127
