Excellent! Thank you. Is this documented anywhere? The git config man page says to look to other git man pages: https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-config.html#_variables A comment there to the effect that "Third party tools may also define their own variables" or something would make it clear that this is the intention.
