Ditto for me, though I've gone so far as to try it (it works for me). At the 
time I wrote the patch I honestly forgot to think about the security 
implications and from the description, this is closing a hole. There are 
situations where you're not in control of a branch name (though tbh, I think 
you'd have to be in an automated situation to check out a branch that is 
basically a command to hack your system, a human would probably figure it too 
cumbersome, or too fishy)

If people rely on the string being set in their scripts, it can be bad to 
remove it. But if it's new in this patch, I don't see the need to keep it. 
Cruft is bad IMO.
