The only option that affects this at the moment is the
enable-remote-branches setting, which defaults to false.  It doesn't
sound like you have remote branches, so I don't think that will help.

What does your ideal end result look like?  How should we choose which
refs to drop, and where can users find the dropped refs?

My only thought at the moment is to support switching on/off branch and
tag names in addition to the existing support for remote branches, or to
allow filtering by pattern or regex.
