Is this feature possible using the REST api?
If not please consider for a (near) future enhancement...

This would be good to have.
Has anyone created their own version as a 3rd party npm module or anything?
There is automatic fork syncing which is pretty similar but is specific to having a whole other repo and not just a branch, unfortunately that won't work for my team's needs. (link)
