I don't know anymore if this is some academic concept talk or concrete
talk but this helped me a few years ago:

    $ ls -l .git/refs/heads/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 dtw dtw 41 2014-11-19 19:23 emacs-24
    -rw-r--r-- 1 dtw dtw 41 2014-11-16 21:16 master

    $ cat .git/refs/heads/master 

That's what branches are in Git. But maybe you are upto something else.
