Oh, absolutely, and I do not think we are breaking anything to start
handling it better (my "I don't have a problem..." above). But I guess I
am doubting that people are actually doing this at all now. I'd expect
most people to have the config set automatically by "branch" or
"checkout", or to use "branch --set-upstream-to". Did your report come
out of a real case, or was it just something you noticed?
