I know all that (and the ways to override it) :)

I was saying that saving disk space is really low on the list of
benefits. Allowing non-fast-forward pushes for certain branches is much
more valuable to the Emacs project.

Stefan, Glenn: any chance we can get a contributor repo set up that's
just like the Emacs repo but allows non-fast-forward pushes, and whose
commits go to emacs-diffs?  Even better would be if user X could only
push to branches "X/.*"
