Taking the dist value from the branch name is "magical" in the sense
that it imposes a new interpretation on an existing datum. Taking it
from a file in the working tree designated for that specific purpose
(which I suppose should really be named "dist", not "branch") is not. I
believe taking it from the git configuration file is an abuse of the git
configuration file, as I said in reply to Tom.
