While I'm not a fan of push --force based solutions (they leave the
repository in a state where consumers can't fast-forward to it from
their earlier state), I'm even less thrilled with the idea that
people might just slash-and-burn repos, abandoning them and creating
new ones because they've put them in an unusable state.
