push: introduce new push.default mode "simple"
When calling "git push" without argument, we want to allow Git to do something simple to explain and safe. push.default=matching is unsafe when used to push to shared repositories, and hard to explain to beginners in some contexts. It is debatable whether 'upstream' or 'current' is the safest or the easiest to explain, so introduce a new mode called 'simple' that is the intersection of them: push to the upstream branch, but only if it has the same name remotely. If not, give an error that suggests the right command to push explicitely to 'upstream' or 'current'. A question is whether to allow pushing when no upstream is configured. An argument in favor of allowing the push is that it makes the new mode work in more cases. On the other hand, refusing to push when no upstream is configured encourages the user to set the upstream, which will be beneficial on the next pull. Lacking better argument, we chose to deny the push, because it will be easier to change in the future if someone shows us wrong.
