The documentation for the command said that `push.default` is the
default without referring to the releavant manual page.
Now `simple` is the default behaviour. Document it right there where
we say we take the default value from `push.default`, and remove the
description of old default being 'matching'.
Also reword cryptic desription of `--all`.

* I skimmed our two tutorials, just to be sure, but they do not
discuss 'git push', so there was nothing to update there.
I *think* we are minimally ready to switch the default behaviour
now, but there may be other places that need similar adjustment.
An independent audit is highly appreciated.
