I can add one, but it's going to be a bit odd.  The issue is that as far
as I can tell, the option is honored only if it's the last one read, so
it necessarily has to be in the per-repository configuration.

I'm not sure it makes that much sense to add a test for this case.  Do
we generally want to write such tests for all config options?  I don't
suppose it's that common a mistake to make.

Does anyone else have views on whether this is good thing to test for?
