If there is both a remote branch and a tag, use the tag.

If there are multiple tags, use the tag with the most recent
tagger date.  If none of the tags have a tagger (these are older
style tags), sort them by name and pick the last one.

If there are no tags, but multiple remote branches, sort them by
name and pick the last one.

I don't think this case of multiple refs per commit shows up often
enough to do this.  But, it might be useful for some users.  Me,
I'd probably never use it.

The commit graph in the history view already shows this information.
I think that should be sufficient.
