[Bug 946001] [NEW] [sponsor-patch] Allow specifying branch instead of bug

Public bug reported:

It would be helpful if I could specify a UDD branch instead of a bug
number for sponsorship.

For MP-based sponsorship items, the branch is what appears in the
sponsorship queue, so finding a bug to give sponsor-patch is an extra
step. Occasionally, these merge proposals aren't connected to a bug (due
to the contributor committing directly instead of using --fixes or
debcommit), requiring an extra step to link the branch to the bug. Still
more occasionally, I sponsor changes that don't reference a bug
directly. I'd prefer to avoid the extra bureaucracy of opening a ticket
just to close it, but also appreciate the checks that sponsor-patch
already does for me.
