Talk about obfuscation: a command that's called "retrieve-tag" doesn't
retrieve anything and is normally unrelated to tags!

I pushed to the emacs-24 branch some documentation changes that should
serve as stopgap.  But I really think we should have a set of VC
commands that deal with branches: create them, switch to them, remove
them, etc.  That the command to switch to a branch and to an arbitrary
commit or tag is the same with some VCSes is sheer luck: other VCSes
don't fit in this scheme, and require different commands and different
options for them.
