We should advise users to set pull.rebase in their configuration,
either globally in ~/.gitconfig or on the repository-level in
.git/config. It seems that newer versions of git will print a warning
if neither pull.ff or pull.rebase is set. It's unfortunate that we
can't include config files as part of the repository, so this will
always need to be done manually.
