If you're going to read the configuration and then scramble to reset
it in wt_porcelain_print(), why did you read the configuration in the
first place?  Should column.branch, status.submodulesummary,
status.showuntrackedfiles affect the --porcelain output too?  Isn't
your expectation of my parser unreasonable?

I will argue that --porcelain should skip the branch config, and drop
down one level lower directly: to the diff-ui configuration.
