I thought your suggestion "Why not just define +pu as the way to
achieve _THIS_ check?" was to make +pu to mean

        git push ko --lockref pu

which would mean "check refs/remotes/ko/pu and make sure the remote
side still is at that commit".

If that is not what you meant, please clarify what _THIS_ is.
