Sorry, I do not understand what you mean.

The new code should be backward compatible with the old one, that is:
existing code using git_config() should continue working. There are a
lot of git_config() calls in the codebase, and a GSoC won't have time to
change them all into something new.

This does not mean we can't add new features, both on the file parsing
side (add the ability to unset a key) and on the user API side (allow
getting the value of a key more easily).
