Thanks for catching it.  The documentation doesn't say anything about
this "can only enable and cannot disable" behavior and the usual
pattern is to allow later settings to override earlier ones, so this
change looks good.

FWIW the GIT_SSL_CERT_PASSWORD_PROTECTED envvar has a similar "can
only enable" behavior, but since it's documented, that's not as big
of a problem.  Do you remember why it was written that way?

When that setting was first added[1], there was some mention of
autodetection if libcurl could learn to do that.  Did it happen?
(Please forgive my ignorance.)
