This is not allowed by default; the developer trying to push will be kindly
told he cannot push because it will create multiple heads.  Of course you
can force-override this, but you have to do it willingly.  So the developer
trying to push will need to pull down the new changes and merge them in
before he can push back.

Although I don't know much about Bazaar, I know they also have some good
docs about possible workflows with DVCS systems that transfer well to
Mercurial (or Bazaar or Git).  They might also be of use.
