Yes, if you add  %{sVvt} to the end of the line in loginfo then the
result will be the following (on the command line as one ending
command parameter):
<module name> <file>,<oldrevision>,<newrevision>[,<branch tag>]
<nextfile>,<oldrev>,<newrev>[,<branchtag>] etc

So the branch tag of the file will be output, but only if it exists.
And it is done on a file-by-file basis.

If you pares this in loginfo then you will be able to log commits to
specific branches as opposed to other commits even if the commit is a

Note that the whole string will be output as one command line argument
even though it contains spaces, and embedded spaces in file and folder
names will be escaped with \.
