I also wrote a script to fast-forward all local branches to their
configured upstream refs.  I finally got around to uploading it
somewhere public:


I use it in my 'git up' alias:

   git config --global alias.up \
       '!git remote update -p; git update-branch -a'

If there's interest I can tweak the style to conform to
Documentation/CodingGuidelines and stick it in contrib/ or something.
