Sounds good. Do we want to explicitly mark "--get-color" as historical
and/or deprecated in the git-config manpage? We won't remove it for a
long time, but this would start the cycle.

No need to cast the argument to free, unless you're getting rid of a
"const" (but here "v" already has type "char *").

However, do we need heap allocation here at all? I think:

  char v[COLOR_MAXLEN];
  if (git_config_color(v, key_, value_) < 0)
	return -1;
  strbuf_addstr(buf, v);

would suffice (and would also fix the leak when we return on error).

Ditto for the call in normalize_value().

Looks good. The out-of-block setup of expect violates our modern style,
but matches the surrounding code.
