Why? It seems oddly inconsistent that "pull" sometimes merges
in changes, but at other times it doesn't.


I propose that there be two subcommands, "pull" and "update"
(now that "update" isn't a reserved word again).
A "git pull" ONLY downloads; a "git update" pulls AND merges.

What's the most common thing to do? pull or update? which is easier to type? what are people used to?

I'm not sure but I suggest that pull and get would be better choices.

git pull
git get

is it rare enough to justify:
git --download-only pull
