Yeah, if it were

	git config section.var ~/some/thing

that would be far clearer than "bla" that what we see is a mere
placeholder.

Another obvious option is to remove the parenthetical comment.

Or "(but you can give values without quoting and let your shell
expand it)", without a confusing sample command that proved not to
help very much.
