Thanks for scratching this itch.

These are very slightly inconsistent with the ordering of
PARSE_OPT_ERROR and PARSE_OPT_HELP. I don't think it matters much. ;-)

This filename is not on the usual form, t1234-foo. As a result, it it is
not picked up by `make test`, so isn't actually exercised. I believe you
selected this name based on the feedback in [1], but I do not think that
this ("tcontains.sh") was what Junio had in mind. Running the script
manually succeeds though. :-)

Ok, that matches the file name.

You might find `test_commit` helpful. All in all, this could be a
two-liner (this example is white-space mangled though):

test_expect_success 'setup ' '
        test_commit "v1.0" &&
        git tag "v1.1"
'

Hmm, this one and a couple like it do not match the filename or test
description. I wonder if these are needed at all, or if some checks like
these are already done elsewhere (maybe not for "git tag", but for some
other user of the option-parsing machinery).

I hope you find this useful.
