Log, double-click on remote branch, and local diverged: option to pull after checkout

Currently, if you double-click on a remote branch in the Log view, you get something like the following:

What I (almost?) always want to do is to checkout the corresponding local branch, but at that commit; in other words, I want to checkout the local branch and then pull. It would be great if there were a "Pull after checkout" checkbox on the dialog, to make this a single action to get where I want. (Bonus points if the checkbox's state was preserved between actions, although I'm not sure of the details of how this would work.)
