Why not have multiple checkout for the main lines? I also have to 
jump between branches and having for example a 3.x maven checkout and a 4.x gradle checkout
works like a charm. depending on what I am after I am opening the appropriate project. 

Sure, git makes changing branches easy within the same checkout, but that does
not mean that it always makes sense and I don't think the disc space you save by having the single
checkout is worth considering.

Come on, there is enough pain with maven as well.
