I did so too, until I patch `git branch -v` to be useful.

I don't understand what you are trying to say. There is no change for those
people, when the pull fails they would be told to use `git pull --merge` if not

You are assuming that everyone will start to use aliases in scripts, which is
not going to happen enough to be a problem.

Try to find svn or hg scripts with aliases, let's see how many you find.

I think you are on the right track but the solution is not to shrug shoulders.
We should acknowledge there are serious problems with the interface, list them,
and try to fix them. One example is `git add $tracked_file` being wrong, it
should be `git stage $tracked_file`.

The real problem is that the core developers of Git don't acknowledge these
user-interface issues, according the them the interface doesn't require any
major changes. Which goes contrary to what most of the world believes.
