P2D4::Allow --new-branch in addition to --force when pushing

Anonymous created an issue

When using named branches, a target repository will refuse being pushed to if it is to receive a new branch, even when that branch has already been merged again and that merge is being pushed as well. For this situation we have the

{{{ hg push --new-branch }}} option. Using it will allow pushing newly created branches but will still lead to refusal if something else seems fishy. This is much safer than just using {{{ hg push --force }}} which will enforce things on the target repository that should have been sorted out locally most of the time.

I hereby humbly request a "Push New Branch" checkbox next to the "Force Push" one.
