All I've seen is the experimental feature mentioned earlier in the
thread (which I recommend against, based on my own experience with
earlier experimental features in git).

If space usage on your local disk is an issue, you can limit the clones
to just a single branch, but I don't think there's much to gain, since
the biggest part of the history will be shared anyway.

(And if you need to share branches between these clones that you don't
wish to push to the official emacs repo, that's what my local "remote"
setup earlier was for)

I was kinda relieved to see that.  I felt my entire understanding of git
slipping away from me...:-)
