I'm using github, and when browsing commits I sometimes want to branch off from 
an old commit.  There doesn't seem to be a way to do this from the github web 
interface, they only seem to allow branch creation from the latest master 

The suggestion on stackoverflow is:

git branch branchname <sha1-of-commit>


Which is ok.  I was just wondering whether there's an easier way, but it's not 
not too bad to get the sha1 for a commit.
