With git (I've never used gpb, and maybe that's my problem) I end up having to 
do things like:

git clone git://git.debian.org/….git
for branch in pristine-tar debian/unstable ; do git branch --track $branch 
origin/$branch ; done

That's the sort of thing that convinces me it's too hard.  The fact that I 
have to manually make the association between individual local and remove 
branches is just insane.
