Well, the exact definition is tricky - should the tag mean that you
are barred from carrying a bicycle?  What if the bicycle is foldable?

I guess.  I really wish OSM had better support for sets, so you could
do something more like "cant_push=bicycle;shopping cart;stroller".
But, I guess that support isn't really here yet.  So with_bicycle=no,
with_shopping_cart=no, with_stroller=no, etc.
