Presumably you want to save it for @{push}. While I'm not against to having
just @{publish} for now, I'm farily certain most people would be using
@{publish} and not @{push}, as that's what `git branch -v` would show, and it
would be closely similar to @{upstream}. Therefore it would make sense to use
@{p} for @{publish}
