Hi Denton, thanks for working on this! We can also assume that the
user knows what they are doing and does not need a warning if they
have run `git config --global pull.ff no`. So really, we can just get
rid of the check for strcmp(opt_ff, "--ff-only") altogether and
instead only check !opt_ff. Could you do that and add some more tests
