Nit: Forgive me if I am wrong, but `, and` is used for joining two
clauses. It would be better to drop the comma.
I was using it as a suggestion for the user's 'go look for an
alternative' step (i.e. that there may be an alternative!)

The <name> is expected in the same format as listed by
'git config' (subkeys separated by dots).
'insteadOf' is a very specific approach for a general suggestion
because it is only
used in url.*.insteadof in the whole codebase. Also, it has a
variation described in
urls.txt as "pushinsteadof". So, if a problem such as mentioned above
a different scenario 'insteadOf' cannot be used in it.
