They mean exactly the same thing; the only difference being that "+"
prefix is per target ref, while "--force" covers everything, acting
as a mere short-hand to add "+" to everything you push.

If the "--lockref/--update-only-if-ref-is-still-there" option
defeats "--force", it should defeat "+src:dst" exactly the same way.
