Right.  Git commands that interact with remote repositories work just as
well with local copies of a repository.  It's not something I've seen
used much, but I find it useful for messing ar^W^Weducative purposes.

That's why I put quotes around "central repository"; nothing actually
leaves the machine the script runs on.  The server-hosted-repo folder
(whose name might be confusing; I should have simply called it
"upstream-repo") is only "central" insofar as the other two repositories
are set up to synchronize with it when running vc-update and vc-push.
