Is it nonsensical? It does not make sense for the @{upstream} magic
token, because we will not have a branch in tracking branch refs/remotes
to point to. But the configuration would still affect how "git pull"
chooses a branch to fetch and merge.

I.e., you can currently do:

  git push --set-upstream /tmp/t master
  git pull ;# pulls from /tmp/t master
