Hi there!

Is there any reason why 'git clone -b' only takes a branch (from refs/heads/)
or a tag (from refs/tags/) ?

Background: At $dayjob we're using some kind of 'hidden' refs (in 
to communicate between the 'branch integrator' (who creates the ref in 
and the 'build master' who wants to build that ref. 

It would be a little easier if the build master could simply say

  git clone -b refs/releases/the-release-for-today URL

instead of: git clone... ; cd ... ; git fetch... ; git checkout....

Any answer or even a better idea to solve that is appreciated.
