To be fair, cloning/fetching/pushing from/to local repos is not a
feature I've seen advertised often, though obviously it's All There In
The Manual :)

Sure, that is a rather heavy-handed way to create conflicts.

What I like about this setup is that it allows someone unfamiliar with
Git "remotes" to experiment locally, either to learn the basics of the
push-pull-whoops-conflict workflow, or to tinker with more advanced
stuff (server hooks, being on the wrong end of git push --force…)
