Mao.  So that means that we don't want to add
  git config --global branch.autosetuprebase always
to the git setup, and we still have to tell people to do
  git pull -r
instead of
  git pull
?  And even worse, the difference between those two commands
depends on what kind of update the contributor is working on?!

I maoing hate git.
