How would this proposed feature differ from what
receive.denyCurrentBranch=false does now?

You have a commit X in a non-bare repo. Your checkout is checked-out to
X, your index has X's content in it, and the branch reference is at X.

Now you push Y to the branch reference, what would you like to have
happen to the checkout & index at this point?
