I didn't propose allowing the branch argument to be omitted, actually.
It would be clearest, _especially_ because one argument currently
means something different, to make that error out.  Sorry for the lack
of clarity.

One more detail I didn't mention before: I think a convenience feature

	git branch --set-upstream-to <upstream>

that takes exactly one argument and means

	git branch --set-upstream HEAD <upstream>

would be fine.  Having a second command to do the same thing as
--set-upstream does (or adding new --set-other-things commands that
use this proposed convention where the value comes before the key) and
migrating awkwardly to it is what I object to.

Clearer?
Jonathan
