I'm curious. Why is -1 (or 255) wrong? It was introduced in the first
version of get_value in 4ddba79 (git-config-set: add more options -
2005-11-20). Back then it returned -1 when there's regex compile error
to distinguish with 0 and 1 (but git-config-set.txt in the same commit
did not get update about exit code). Maybe we should update document
instead of the code.
