Does it work if the current branch tracks another local branch which

that, but I haven't found a good way to test it. And if I want to set
up a local branch for the purpose of rebuilding a package for a
different Fedora version (e.g., systemd on F13), I am out of luck. A
"branch" file in the versioned content would Just Work in the first case
and provide a solution for the second case.
So would a configurable branch attribute. I have to admit I like that
idea a lot better than "branch" files, and especially better than some
complicated rule with multiple places to look for the information.
Magic inspection of the branch relationships is not a substitute for
Amen to that.
