The following patch adds two new branch commands.

I can't find the existing vc API method for renaming tags/branches.

The existing API method has no argument for START-POINT.
Maybe every backend could handle its prefix arg directly
from current-prefix-arg?  For example,

 (defun vc-git-create-tag (dir name branchp)
   (if current-prefix-arg (completion-read "Start point: ") ...
