Indeed, the _git suite of functions almost always use _alternative,
which calls _describe with a hardcoded matcher which is prefixed to
whatever appears in the matcher_list style.  On line 41 of

_describe -t "${def%%:*}" "$descr" ws -M 'r:|[_-]=* r:|=*' "$subopts[@]"

I believe that makes it impossible to write a matcher-list zstyle that
will swap out "-" with "--" in the context where Marlon wants it.  Can
someone demonstrate a workaround?
