push: make non-fast-forward help message configurable
This message is designed to help new users understand what has happened when refs fail to push. However, it does not help experienced users at all, and significantly clutters the output, frequently dwarfing the regular status table and making it harder to see. This patch introduces a general configuration mechanism for optional messages, with this push message as the first example.
