does a stash *need* any reference to the branch on which it was created?

  i realize that, when you "git stash push", stash graciously saves
the branch you were on as part of the commit message, but does any
subsequent stash operation technically *need* that branch name?

  it doesn't seem like it -- even "git stash branch" really only needs
the commit that was the basis of that stash to create the new branch.

  so, does any stash operation actually need the originating branch
name? (i'm guessing no, but i've been wrong before.)
