Nope, it uses two branches which default to "master" and
"debian". They can be overridden via cmdline switch or
conffile. Still, upstream of git-buildpackage is quite active, if we
see a clear benefit in adding the "proverbial extra level of
indirection" I'm sure we can have him accept a patch implementing
that.
