So I have a (perhaps seemingly unrelated) question here: If this is put
into general use, it'll encourage more people to push to such branches.
I'm not very fluent in git, yet before that might happen I'd like to
figure a way to keep my clone clean of the objects related to such
branches, but without also omitting the objects for, in particular,
release branches. Hence in .git/config

	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

is too wide while limiting to just master is too narrow. From earlier
experiments I seem to recall that the *s here can't be simply replaced
by more restricting wildcard "expressions" ...
