I naively tried to override merge.ff = false using --ff-only on the
command line. I expected that it would override the configured default
and perform a fast-forward merge. Instead, it said:

    $ git config -l | grep -F 'merge.ff'

    $ git merge --ff-only foo
    fatal: You cannot combine --no-ff with --ff-only.

On the other hand, I see that --ff works just fine in the same initial state.

    $ git merge --ff foo
    Updating b869407..17b5495
     4 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 5 deletions(-)

Would it be better if --ff-only refused to merge only if the commits
themselves prevented fast-forwarding?
