In Git, two-part config settings are case-insensitive. We traditionally
write them in lower camel case because it's easier for people to read.
Git will canonicalize the values when "git config" runs.

So I don't think we should change this.

Thanks for fixing this. I didn't realize that we only set values if the
variable holding them is undef. Would you mind adding a test for this
case so we won't regress it in the future?
