Absolutely.  I guess I took this as read in the personal spaces.

Well, if you only have one clone, why would you need to pull branches 
from upstream that you pushed yourself?  In fact, why would you even 
need to push them in that case, unless it's for backup?  ... and if 
you're restoring your backup, then that's a new clone.  You might 
temporally have only only one clone, but across all time you have more 
than one.

It's pedantry, though, so feel free to re-word it.

Thanks for the tweaks, anyway.
