Using the new flag will omit symbolic refs from the output.

Without this flag, it is possible to get this behavior by using the
`%(symref)` formatting field name and piping output through grep to
include only those refs that do not output a value for `%(symref)`, but
having this flag is more elegant and intention revealing.
