Not sure how many people still use [1], as referenced by our git wiki[2], but it appears git worktrees are a viable replacement for that technique. In short, if you're already in your checkout:

git worktree add ../9.6 REL9_6_STABLE

would give you a checkout of 9.6 in the ../9.6 directory.

BTW, I learned about this from this "git year in review" article[3].
