Hi Rohit

Thanks for the re-roll

I still think this should document what it does rather than how it is 
implemented - see my previous comments.

strategy_opts is a shallow copy of opts->strategy_opts - this will cause 
problems later

I'd rewrite this as
	if (opts->strategy_opts)
		strbuf_addstr(&buf, opts->strategy_opts);

without the outer if testing opts->ignore_whitespace
> +
then add
	if (opts->ignore_whitespace)
here

> +		free(strategy_opts);

and then you don't need this free() or strategy_opts. At the moment this 
has freed opts->stragety_opts which is what we were trying to avoid, in 
fact it's slightly worse than the last version because we don't change 
opts->strategy_opts to reflect the fact it has been freed. Also the 
caller cannot know if it has been freed as it depends what other options 
are set.

replace this withe
	if (buf.len)
		parse_strategy_opts(&replay, buf.buf);
	strbuf_release(&buf);

This way we never change opts->strategy_opts and we always release the 
temporary copy.
