 (1) usually you push to and fetch from the same, so no pushUrl is
     ever needed, just a single Url will do (this is often true for
     cvs/svn style shared repository workflow); and

 (2) sometimes you want to fetch from one place and push to another
     (this is often true for "fetch from upstream, push to my own
     and ask upstream to pull from it" workflow), and in that case
     you want pushUrl in addition to Url.  Most importantly, in this
     case, you do *NOT* want to push to Url.  You only push to

Setting *one* pushURL is a way to say "That URL I fetch from is
*not* the place I want to push (I may not even be able to push
there); when I say 'push', push there instead".  Your proposed
