While I haven't seen the verb much, the term 'push-back' has been used
in computing circles for several years at least, to mean something like
'objections to a proposed change'.  The Wayne State CIO used it
frequently when we were proposing to institute new password
requirements, or a change to the Blackboard system or something.
