I agree with the bike-shedding aspect of your comment, and actually
I like my version better.
It makes it clear that a single-shot --merge or --rebase from the
command line is not recommended. "To match the project's workflow"
is not optional in most projects, and it is preferrable to decide
once and set the choice in stone.
