Good idea !

Unfortnately, [[ doesn't exist in /bin/sh, so you'd have to use grep
The long line is also a bit hard to parse. Wouldn't something like
if ... | grep -q ...; then
cat <<EOF 1>&2
There is no branch in the local copy of the repository right now!
Hint: type git-branch, make sure you are in a valid branch and then try again
look nicer ?
