Certainly. I'm quite unhappy with the current 'git branch', and am
looking to improve it. Branch descriptions will definitely be useful
to display as well.

The previous effort in collaboration with Duy fell apart,
unfortunately. Currently, there are a few small patches enhancing
f-e-r from the original series in 'next'. Once they graduate, the plan
is to refactor f-e-r a bit so that 'git branch' can slowly be moved
into using its machinery.
