Once again this is the wrong approach.

  1. It's inconsistent with the current documentation
  2. It treats configuration and command line arguments differently when
     the documentation says they are the same
  3. It breaks behavior users are currently relying on
  4. It changes default behavior without warning users that such
     behavior is going to change (0 days of deprecation)
