I don't know in which version these commands were introduced but they
are in at least.

Perhaps we should check for a minimal version in our script?

man git implies it can be split into two commands:

           If -B is given, <new_branch> is created if it doesn’t exist;
otherwise, it
           is reset. This is the transactional equivalent of

               $ git branch -f <branch> [<start point>]
               $ git checkout <branch>

           that is to say, the branch is not reset/created unless "git
checkout" is
