Add repo start option to create the branch based off HEAD

This makes it way easier to recover from forgetting to run repo start
before committing: just run `repo start -b new-branch`, instead of
all that tedious mucking around with reflogs.

repo

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
