[SciPy-Dev] git question: fetch a PR without merging into master

Hey all,

Does anyone have a git recipe for grabbing a pull request from github
without merging it into master?  Ideally, I'd like to branch from the same
point the PR branches from master, and not merge the branch back into
master.  The use case is to test pull requests that have merge conflicts.
I'd like to be able to experiment with the PR, while putting off resolving
the merge conflicts until later.

Thanks,

Warren
