RFR: publish: add flag --follow

Hi all,

please review this patch that adds the `--follow` switch and the `--browser` flag to `git publish`. These flags can be
used to automatically open a browser with the link that a remote host replies with in the response to the `git
push --set-upstream` command that `git publish` runs. The effect is a "poor mans" `git pr create` for those that can't
(or don't want) to have a personal access token on their machine.

For example, running `git publish --follow --browser=firefox` will open the "Open a pull request" page in Firefox.

- [x] Manual testing of `git publish --follow --browser=firefox` on Linux x64
