I'm not really sure if extindex writing to the config file
is a good idea (since -index doesn't, as -init exists).
Just document what it does and let the user handle it, since
the config file shouldn't be daunting to new users.

extindex is a far more important feature than libgit2 support
(which is actually underperforming and might go away).  The
search results page is also improved (IMHO), nowadays.
