Those who want to rename their own branches should be allowed to do
so easily when it is convenient for them to do so, whether the
reason for renaming their local branch is because their upstream
renamed the branches they are interested in and have good reasons to
use the same name, or because they made a typo when they created
their local brnach, but I do not think renaming the local branch
should be done automatically.
