This seems not to be correct at all.

I tried to do a simple 
 git clone "git://git.debian.org/git/chinese/scim-python.git#upstream"
and got 
 fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

It works fine without that #upstream (which is a valid upstream branch)

It is the same when using debcheckout
 debcheckout --git-track="*" "git://git.debian.org/git/chinese/scim-python.git#upstream"
