No, I actually prefer people to avoid rebasing unless they have some real
reason for it. My pulls almost always end up being merges anyway, since I
pull from several people, so even if you were to have rebased, it would
_not_ have been a fast-forward for me, since I'd in the meantime have
pulled from others anyway.
