I want the warning that they had not made the required config choice
between rebase/merge needed to handle a non-ff case, not the default
merge (or rebase) behavior.  The warning gives them a chance to
realize that this was not an appropriate time for a `svn update`
analog, and that the project may not to want to have the branches
joined at all ;).
