I played around with this test data: [sec "tio"] val = a\\ ue = b and saw "git config --rename-section sec.tio sec.tion" just work fine (without the event stream change). Without the event stream change, "git config --unset sec.tio.ue" loses "sec.tio.val" but with it we see we only lose the last line, which is the correct thing to happen. Nice.
