Hm, but why do you need this at all ?

I'm not sure what 'this' refers to, did you mean this line:

+ git checkout -B "$MYBRANCH"

Isn't

git checkout -r $BRANCH

working for you ?

? Did I miss a git syntax trick? the git-checkout manpage doesn't mention an
-r option.

My intention is to have a source service that can tar up an arbitrary branch,
and afaics there isn't a way to do that with git in tar_scm at present. If I
understand correctly, tar_scm may be called where an existing clone exists, so
I used checkout -B to cover the case that the user changes the branch in an
existing source service so the existing clone is checked out to the requested
branch.
