Indeed, it's not entirely uncommon to have to dig into the test
functions when writing tests. My bigger concern was someone coming
along and thinking that the mixed use of test_config() and manual `git
config` in the same test was a mistake, and want to fix that mistake,
which would lead the person down the same rabbit hole. Explicit
cleanup via test_unconfig() and consistent use of `git config` within
the test, on the other hand, does not look accidental, so the reader
would be less likely to want to "fix the mistake". The comment you
added in the re-roll above the manual cleanup saves the reader the
trouble of having to dive into the implementation of test_config(),
which is a nice bonus.
