Let's see if I understand you. You want to (for each commit) to be able
to tell the branch-name the commit had at the creation time?

Not all commits have branches (however, loose commits is usually not
wanted). Many commits are part of many branches.

A branch is not a collection of commits but a pointer to a commit (which
has parents).
