There are also tools like git-new-workdir (in git's contrib section)
that allow you to keep separate working directories for different
branches, without needing multiple clones. It's written in shell, but,
 AFAIK, it works fine on windows using cygwin.

yap (yet another porcelain) also provides this functionality. easy-git
doesn't, but as a thin layer, it should work fine with git-new-workdir
