Saying it is useless is much too harsh.

I agree that the non-master branches should have this allowed.  Such
as for the typical use of the 'next' and 'pu' type of branches and for
other topic branches.  I will set something up in the hook scripts to
allow this.  Unfortunately I don't have an already written hook
script.  But I know what is needed and will find something or cook
something up for this.
