Actually, what do we think about an -i/--interactive flag (with an
associated pull.interactive boolean config to setup global/per-repo
defaults)?  Then after the fetch, you'd get one of the following:

  Merge $count commits from $repository $refspec into $current_branch?
  Rebase $count commits from $current_branch onto $repository $refpec?
  Fast-forward $current_branch by $count commits to $repository $refpec?

and have a chance to bail out if you saw:

  Merge 1003 commits from git://example.net/main.git master into my-feature?

because you forgot which branch you were on.
