No, it's better for Richard to pull, then checkin.  That's closer to
what he is used to, and even if there's trouble (pull fails due to
uncommitted changes), that trouble is closer in spirit to what he
would have in a similar situation with CVS and bzr, so it would be
easier for him to understand the situation and fix it.
