Should this mention --force?

    ... refuse to create the worktree (unless --force is used).

As 'force_new_branch' and 'checkout_existing_branch' are mutually
exclusive, I wonder if they should be combined into an enum to make it
easier to reason about.

As with "creating branch" in 2/4, "checking out branch..." here is
missing a newline.

This test is no longer checking auto-vivification ("bringing a new
branch to life automatically"), but rather branch name inference, so
the title is now misleading. Perhaps retitle it to '"add" checks out
existing branch of dwim'd name' or something.

(The name "precious" is also now misleading since it's no longer
checking that a precious branch does not get clobbered, however,
changing the name would make the diff unnecessarily noisy, so it's
probably okay as is.)

Should we also have a corresponding test that this "fail" can be
overridden by --force? (I realize that --force is tested elsewhere,
but only with an explicitly-provided branch name, whereas this dwims
the branch name.)
