How many people even use vc-next-action these days?  IOW, would it be
okay to make it work very differently for modern dVCSes than what it
does now?

For example, in a Git repository where "git status" shows nothing,
vc-next-action invoked without an argument currently says "Fileset is
up-to-date" and does nothing, which is IMO less than useful.  Would
someone mind if it suggested a "git pull" instead?

Also, there's no handling of pull problems, and the handling of
conflicts is rudimentary at best.  And, of course, there's no sup[port
at all for pushing; there's no notion of local commits that are
missing upstream.  Would someone mind if vc-next-action were changed
in these regards?
