If this option is meant to forbid fixing up an screw-up by doing
"git-push --force", I do not quite like it.

It sounds as if arguing that "rm -fr" is dangerous so presence
of -f and -r at the same time should imply -i option.  I think
the right answer is not making -i implied, but train the user to
understand what -fr means before using it.
