Thanks.  A couple of points about this:

1. Isn't this inconsistent compared to all the other commands,
shouldn't "-r" on "default" have required a "-r default" or
somesuch rather than rely on whitespace?

2. Rather than by default operating on the "default" branch
(whatever that is), shouldn't it instead operate on the sticky
tag?

3. If the answer to "2" is "no", should there be an option to
operate on the sticky-tag?

BFN.  Paul.
