. at-open-brace `@{` is used as a notation to access a reflog entry.
With the `--branch` option, it expands a branch name shorthand and
prints the name of the branch the shorthand refers to.
With the `--branch` option, it expands the ``previous branch syntax''
`@{-n}`. For example, `@{-1}` is a way to refer the last branch you
were on. This option should be used by porcelains to accept this
