Sorry, but I can share Steffen's concerns here. You may have a simple clone on your machine and it sounds quite useless to me, that all sandboxes are retrieved once you say git pull.
If one's really interested into the sandbox-branches of other devs, he can pull them from somewhere else.

I'm not sure whether "private" dev branches should be present in the official repository of a product anyway.
