Thanks for the feedback. And the "do nothing" option is there, although it's so disliked by so many people that the chances of us not changing our workflow is pretty slim.
The interests of folks that prefer the terminal focused "commit-locally-and-push" workflow can still be taken into account in the evaluation though - while it appears likely either GitHub or GitLab will be adopted as the repository management service, whether or not the maintenance branches and the default branch are marked as protected so even core developers *have* to go through the web based merge process is a separate question.
There are also tools like git-pulls (Ruby: https://github.com/schacon/git-pulls) and hub (Go: https://hub.github.com/) that let folks review and merge GitHub PRs from the terminal. (I had a quick look through some of the command line clients listed at https://about.gitlab.com/applications/, but didn't see anything as workflow focused as git-pulls or hub, so "good support for terminal based usage" may count as a concrete technical differentiator here)
