And now we have that "git branch". It's a trivial one-liner, except with
the setup and error checking it's actually more like six lines.

Add "git branch" script
You can use it as
git branch <branchname> [start-point]
and it creates a new branch of name <branchname>. If a starting point
is specified, that will be where the branch is created, otherwise it
will be created at the current HEAD.
git branch xyz abc
git checkout xyz
can also be written as
git checkout -b xyz abc
as per the previous commit.
