Why would you want to do that when you can clone the whole thing and
then just check out what you want?
Why clone master when you really want master-1.12?

Before I RTFM'd and discovered the --branch command I used to do as you suggest but it seemed quite a waste:
git clone [...] master-1.12
git checkout origin/master-1.12 -b master-1.12
git branch -D master

Note that I really want a separate directory that is dedicated to master-1.12. The whole do-everything-in-one-directory thing takes entirely too long (right now I can test a fuzz failure against 3 or more branches in parallel without even having to wait for a recompile let alone deal with all the mess that gets left behind when switching major branches--look at git status after switching from a master-1.10 compile to master for an example).
