If you use unbound branches, push is slow but commit is not slow.
Separating push from commit helps you in that, you can do push less

With bound branches, push = commit.  So, you are stuck with the

By arguing "both ways", I mean that you want to argue that bound
branches are better.  But, when pushed, the best you can say is that
they are no worse.  Nobody has pointed out anything that makes them

And the "no worse" argument only holds if you exclusively work on
separate task branches.  If you want to work on the main branch and
commit it frequently, like Eli wants to do for bug fixes, then bound
branches are worse because they force you to synchronize for each
