Talden, and lo! it spake thus:

Heck no.  Using push and pull in a checkout make EXACTLY as much sense
as using push and pull anywhere else.  All a checkout means is that
your working tree isn't colocated with your branch.

Push and pull are branch operations; you use them any time you want to
do something involving 2 branches.  They're inappropriate when you
want to do something involving your branch and your working tree, but
that's not push/pull's fault, any more than it's the fault of a
screwdriver when you can't rake leaves with it.

           On the Internet, nobody can hear you scream.
