1. CVS in fact does the rebase when you "cvs update" with local
   modifications, so functionally 'git pull --rebase' is closer to
   original CVS "cvs update" than 'git pull --rebase=false' (i.e.,

2. When there is no merge conflicts, everything just works in both cases
   without user intervention.
3. Merge conflicts, if any, as well as their resolution, are very
   similar in both workflows. The only difference is that one needs to
   learn to use "git rebase --continue" instead of "git commit" after
   conflicts are resolved.

4. Setting "pull.rebase" configuration value to 'preserve' or 'true'
   hides pull invocation differences (minor convenience).
