worktree: add -b/-B options
One of git-worktree's roles is to populate the new worktree, much like git-checkout, and thus, for convenience, ought to support several of the same shortcuts. Toward this goal, add -b/-B options to create a new branch and check it out in the new worktree. (For brevity, only -b is mentioned in the synopsis; -B is omitted.)
