#202: Add support for tags in git/darcs

 Currently the !REPO_BRANCH directive can only be used to specify a branch
 to checkout in a git or hg repository. Tags can already be checked out in
 hg since the command is the same as for checking out branches. In git
 however, the 'git checkout --track -b branch' command will fail if the
 specified branch is actually a tag. GetComponents should compare the
 branch name with the output of `git tag -l`, and if a match is found it
 should checkout the tag. Darcs currently does not support !REPO_BRANCH at
 all; this should be implemented.
