I don't think that's the case.  This command:

  git --env-config a.b.c=ENV_VAR

would be equivalent to this shell command:

  git -c "a.b.c=$ENV_VAR"

In other words, ENV_VAR is the _name_ of a environment variable to read
for the config value.  Subprocesses would inherit it using the
undocumented GIT_CONFIG_PARAMETERS.

Or are you trying to hide the configuration key as well?
