Completely agree.

git rev-parse --abbrev-ref @{u}

git config branch.$(git rev-parse --abbrev-ref HEAD).remote

'git fetch' without arguments is the same as git fetch `git upstream-remote`

Junio: See? It's not the expected behavior for most of our user-base.

'git log @{u}..HEAD' does the same as 'git log `git upstream`..HEAD'

I think we should have a user-friendly 'git ls' command.

Or 'git show --quiet'.

We should probably also add typical shortucts:

d = diff
l = log
f = fetch
p = push
r = reset
ci = commit
rb = rebase
co = checkout
st = status
pi = cherry-pick
mt = mergetool
