Wait. Even if a hypothetical version of Git understood @@ as "the
current branch", how would you use that notation, instead of HEAD,
to decide what to "display the current branch to the user"?
You obviously will not be doing
You would be doing something around "git symbolic-ref" at the very
least, and wouldn't you be feeding HEAD to that symbolic-ref anyway
while doing so?
