Of course not!  (At least, not as far as Git goes in general - but
I don't think there is some Emacs idiosyncrasy here.)

Anyway, if you *must* (or you think you must) create separate
"workspaces" ("worktrees" in official Git parlance) for various
branches, you might want to check out the `git worktree' command.  But
most probably you don't need such a feature.

Also, if you tend to switch between WiP on various branches (which is
not something I would recommend, but may be necessary), `git stash' is
definitely your friend.
