The way I understood it, we wanted our copies of the upstream branches
to keep their own upstream names verbatim but with an "upstream-"
prefixed to avert name clashes.  Otherwise it would get really
confusing figuring out which of our "upstream-" branches corresponds to
which actual branch upstream.

On a different note, if we're forgoing a "master" branch in favour of
debian-unstable, then when I run git clone, which branch will present
by default, will it be debian-unstable?
