Both of these arguments seem to be assuming that the person trying to
find or understand the command is *already familiar* with Git to a
significant degree. That doesn't seem like a good assumption for an
operation explicitly designed to help *Bazaar* users deal with a
*foreign* VCS.

If we want the command to imply warning connotations, then it must do so
*without* relying on knowledge of other VCSes otherwise the implication
will be completely lost on a significant portion of exactly the sort of
user it's intended for.
