Just a short ... maybe dumb ... question. Is it worth the trouble to not track 
all remote branches. I mean instead of

 bash : 1015 ] $ git config --get-all remote.origin.fetch


[ bash : 1018 ] $ git config --get-all remote.origin.fetch

I know that means i have even more maintenance to do on version switches.

The question is if this really saves bandwith? And i don't necessarily mean 
only in the context of kdeqt. But for example the real qt repository.
