All of the options sounds OK to me. I do like the idea of being able
to set it and --continue what I was doing.

Even more convenient than that would be an optional "user.prompt=true"
so the ident check could get what it needs from a simple terminal
prompt, set it in the local config, and try again before returning.

While that would be nice, I've been OK with the current system for my
working repositories for a while. I'm used to having to go set it and
repeat whatever I was trying to do, as it seems like I forget to set
my about half of the time :)
