I don't think it's worth worrying too much about that. We wouldn't match
the keys in multiple places anyway (and even if we did, it would
arguably be the right thing to give every callback a chance to see
them).

The only thing it does is short-circuit the rest of the checks that we
know won't match. But that doesn't really change the performance
substantially; the worst case is already that we have to hit every
possible strcmp().

And most of our config code does not worry about this, and is OK with
branching (it just needs to propagate errors, as above).  For some more
discussion, see 6680a0874f (drop odd return value semantics from
userdiff_config, 2012-02-07).

All that said...

The most lib-ified thing is to just use the configset code. I.e.,
wherever you need the config, just load it on demand via
git_config_get_int or whatever.

Yes, don't do that. :) That was the same thing we finally got rid of for
userdiff_config().
