Would it?  As long as your pushurl does not start with git://, I think
your configuration would still work fine.

After this patch, neither pushInsteadOf nor pushUrl overrides the
other one.  The rule is:

        1. First, get the URL from the remote's configuration, based
           on whether you are fetching or pushing.

           (At this step, in your setup git chooses the URL specified
           with pushurl in your .git/config.)
        2. Next, apply the most appropriate url.*.insteadOf or
           url.*.pushInsteadOf rule, based on whether you are fetching
           or pushing.

           (At this step, no rewrite rules apply, so the URL is used
           as is.)
