[issue2787] default branch alias / make random branch the default branch

New submission from Chris <martpfis at alumni.ethz.ch>:

Sometimes it would be very useful to have a differently named default
branch, for example for historical reasons after having migrated to Mercurial.

This could be achieved by either having the possibility to define a random
branch as the default branch or by allowing more than one name for one
single branch (branch aliases) which could also be applied to the "default"
branch.
