Yes, that's true. My confusion stems from working with CVS/SVN, ClearCase and the like where the normal case is that you 
look at the last commit on any given branch and call that the branch head. I guess the notion of "last commit" is less 
pertinent in Git although that was what I really meant when I said "head" in the above sentence.

Anyway, sorry for the buzz. I obviously have more to learn :-)
