Hi,

this is the second part of my quest to introduce a machine-parseable
output for git-fetch(1) after the initial refactorings that have been
merged via e9dffbc7f1 (Merge branch 'ps/fetch-ref-update-reporting',
2023-04-06).

Parsing the output of fetches is mostly impossible. It prettifies
reference names that are about to be updated, doesn't print the old and
new object IDs the refs are being updated from and to, and prints all of
that information in nice columns. In short, it is designed to be read by
humans rather than machines.

This makes it hard to use in a script way though, e.g. to learn about
which references actually have been updated or which have not been
updated. This patch series intends to fix that by introducing a new
machine-parseable interface:

```
$ git fetch --output-format=porcelain --no-progress

```

The series is structured as following:

    - Patches 1 and 2 improve test coverage for output formats.

    - Patch 3 fixes a bug with the current output format.

    - Patch 4 to 6 perform some preliminary refactorings.

    - Patch 7 introduces a new `--output-format=` option for
      git-fetch(1) that allows the user to configure the output more
      directly.

    - Patch 8 introduces the new "porcelain" output format.
