Any reference. So yes, sure you can. But this doesn't really address
the second part of my e-mail -- people would still have to issue:

git remote prune origin

and I don't want to fight Uwe over supposedly magical git commands :)

Yes, this would be another option (but it requires admin-side tweaks).

Exactly. We really don't need to do anything other than just agree to
not commit there... that's part of the reason I wanted more "semantic"
names for branches -- they're kind of hard to eradicate once created
in public.

Anyway, as for branch_5x -- no need to protect anything, really. If
somebody DOES commit something (by accident or otherwise) we can
always revert those commits (or even force the reference to what it
was before the mistake, effectively undoing the change).
