So....I guess. But has anybody in the history of git ever explicitly
configured advice.* to true?

It has never produced any change of behavior, and the whole point of
"advice.*" was that git would advise by default, and you would use
advice.* to shut it up once you were sufficiently educated.

I don't think doing it this way is _wrong_. It just feels sort of
pointlessly over-engineered. It's also a little weird that all of the:

  if (advice_foo)

will trigger because "advice_foo" is set to -1. I think it does the
right thing, but it feels like a bug (the value is now a tri-state, and
we silently collapse two states into one).
