    This has the effect that Git will never implicitly do a merge commit,
    including while doing git pull. If I'm unexpectedly out of sync when I
    git pull, I get this message:
    > fatal: Not possible to fast-forward, aborting.
    At that point, I know that I've forgotten to do something in my normal
    workflow, and I retrace my steps.
    I like the value of seeing a failure message if a pull (or just merge)
    fails due to not being able to get fast-forwarded. Then I can look to
    see whose changes went out, that I may have not expected to be there.
