 As expected in my previous email, this is not possible:

Pierre@E6510-Muller ~/git/archer
$ git push  --force origin master
Total 0 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0)
remote: error: denying non-fast-forward refs/heads/master (you should pull
To ssh://
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://'

  Thus my error is written in stone forever :(
