It'd be cool if I were able to override config settings at every
nested directory.

For example, I have my ~/.gitconfig that has one email address in it,
but I also have multiple repos inside ~/dev which I want to use a
different email address for.  The only way to do that now is to edit
all of these: ~/dev/*/.git/conf -- and there are lots of them, and new
repos get added all the time - and I forget.

If I could add ~/dev/.gitconfig and have the settings in that override
~/.gitconfig then this would be way more manageable.  Obviously,
individual repo's .git/config should take ultimate precedence.

Thanks for the consideration!
