Hey, even more impressive is "git pull --all", which will happily try to
create an octopus of every single ref available at the other end.

Now, I think that octopus merges in _general_ are likely to be driver
error, and that it might make sense to have a separate flag to enable
them in the first place. That would solve the confusion..

So then you could do

git pull --all --octopus xyzzy

if you _really_ meant to do that.
