I guess the above needs a bit of clarification.

The reason I do not think "pull -r" gives much value to the users to
trigger "pull --rebase" is because the use of "pull --rebase" is
very project specific.  If you are working on a project that forbids
merges, you would _always_ want to run "pull --rebase", which means
you would likely have it configured and would not be typing from the
command line.
