I see nothing terribly messy there.  You will see very similar picture
when someone merges their local feature branch, and then pushes

Maybe you don't like merge-commits in general, but then it's a
different discussion altogether.

Why not "pull --rebase" instead?  Or even tell them how to configure
Git to do the "--rebase" part automatically?  People shouldn't need to
learn yet another command, just for that.

It didn't.  It's just that this is your first time, and emacs-diffs is
a moderated list, so I needed to approve your messages, just this
once.  Part of your welcome party, I guess.
