We would need to
* design this feature (seems like you already have a good idea what you need)
* implement it (see builtin/push.c):
 - move "struct string_list push_options = STRING_LIST_INIT_DUP;"
  to be a file-static variable, such that we have access to it outside
of cmd_push.
 - In git_push_config in builtin/push.c that parses the config, we'd
need to check
  for "push.optionDefault" and add these to the push_options (I assume multiple
  are allowed)
* document it (Documentation/git-push.txt)
* add a test for it ? (t/t5545-push-options.sh)

Care to write a patch? Otherwise I'd mark it up as part of
#leftoverbits for now,
as it seems like a good starter project.

Thanks,
Stefan
