In Plasma, we usually name branches <username>/<topic>, so for example 
sebas/breakpluginloader. It'd be supersweet if the user who "owns" this branch 
would be able to delete it. I often leave these branches lingering for too 
long before I ask notmart to delete them, so that would be a useful addition.

I quite like not being able to delete arbitrary branches.
