Not a new problem with this patch, but does the above pattern
introduce potential problems?  I am wondering if overwriting the
config file with a little piece that has only the stuff the test is
interested in, while wiping the parts that may be essential for
repository integrity (e.g. "extensions.objectFormat"), is OK in the
long run (brian cc'ed for his sha256 work).  There also are
autodetected crlf settings etc. that are in the .git/config when a
test repository is created, and we probably would want to keep them
intact.
