oh man, i've been bugging guys locally to do that because one of our
engineer's clocks is way off, and it really bugs me (it also breaks
various tools we have which try to trigger stuff).

Note that -f isn't the flag i want.

it should be -intentional-future-date and the error message should
provide it so that people can copy it when they get the error.

Oh, and if you try to use -intentional-future-date and none of the
item dates are in the future, your push should also fail.

i.e. it shouldn't be possible for people to just add a flag to their
.hgrc file which lets them work around this, and they shouldn't get in
the habit of using -f.
