The BFXL chunk doesn't exist anymore in this iteration, right?

I wondered about having a user-facing "-1" here. My gut feeling is that
we usually use "0" to mean "no limit" in other places, and it probably
make sense to be consistent. It does look like we use both, though, and
I'm having trouble formulating a grep pattern to find examples that
doesn't produce a lot of noise.

These are "0 is no limit":

  pack.windowMemory
  pack.deltaCacheSize
  git-daemon --max-connections

These are "-1 is no limit":

  git-grep --max-depth
  rev-list --max-parents (I think?)

So I dunno. It's a pretty minor thing, but I think it's good to aim for
consistency, and since this is user-facing we won't be able to change it
later.
