Can this be made easier?  I could imagine request-pull learning
--ff-only that generates a message like


        Please pull --ff-only


        to get the following changes [...]

which could work ok if the recipient notices the --ff-only, but I
wonder if there is a simpler way.

Thanks for the food for thought,
