Not exactly. There are three classes of people:

They have been doing just fine and wouldn't benefit from this
series at all.
- wrote scripts using --get, relying on it barfing if fed zero
(i.e. missing) or two or more (i.e. ambiguous), perhaps a way to
keep their configuration files (arguably unnecessarily) clean.
They are directly harmed by this series.
- wrote scripts using --get-all and did the last-one-wins
themselves. They wouldn't benefit directly from this series,
unless they are willing to spend a bit of time to remove their
own last-one-wins logic and replace --get-all with --get (but the
same effort is needed to migrate to --get-one).
- wanted to write scripts using --get, but after finding out that
it barfs if you feed two, gave up emulating the internal, without
realizing that they could do so with --get-all. They can now
write their scripts without using --get-all.
There are three classes ofpeople: those that can count and those that can't
