Indeed, it's available at [1]. There are no

Not as things are currently configured and I'm not sure how easy it
would be to reliably accomplish this.

The only thing you'll find in that repository currently is tags (not
branches as I stated earlier; sorry!) with names of the form
phabricator/base/1234 and phabricator/diff/1234. These contain the base
and head commits of revision 1234, respectively. Note that 1234 does not
identify a differential; rather it is a revision of a differential (e.g.
the number that you see in the "ID" column of the history table fn a
differential in the web interface).
