For those times you want to update your remotes

With a note on the slight difference in yelling between
the use of `git remote set-url` and the sheepish,
silent eater of arguments, `git config remote`.

And that you can have a fetch that isn't at the
same house of your push URL.

<h4>
git remote set-url
<small>update an existing remote URL</small>
</h4>
<p>Should you ever need to update a remote's URL, you can do so with
the <code>git remote set-url</code> command.
</p>
<pre>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/pjhyett/hw.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/pjhyett/hw.git (push)
<b>$ git remote set-url origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git</b>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (push)
</pre>
<p>In addition to this, you can set a different push URL when you
include the <code>--push</code> flag. This allows you to fetch from
one repo while pushing to another and yet both use the same remote alias.
</p>
<pre>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (push)
<b>$ git remote set-url --push origin git://github.com/pjhyett/hw.git</b>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/pjhyett/hw.git (push)
</pre>
<p>Internally, the <code>git remote set-url</code> command calls
<code>git config remote</code>, but has the added benefit of reporting
back any errors. <code>git config remote</code> on the other hand, will
silently fail if you mistype an argument or option and not actually set
anything.
</p>
<p>For example, we'll update the <code>github</code> remote but
instead reference it as <code>guhflub</code> in both invocations.
</p>
<pre>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (push)
<b>$ git config remote.guhflub git://github.com/mojombo/hw.git</b>
<b>$ git remote -v</b>
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (fetch)
github git@github.com:schacon/hw.git (push)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/github/git-reference.git (push)
<b>$ git remote set-url guhflub git://github.com/mojombo/hw.git</b>
fatal: No such remote 'guhflub'
</pre>
<p class="nutshell">
<b>In a nutshell</b>, you can update the locations of your remotes
with <code>git remote set-url</code>. You can also set different push
and fetch URLs under the same remote alias.
