Hmm, maybe. The "... take advantage of the new code" refers to the
possibility (or otherwise) of re-using your work to update these
"older API" functions to the new API style. (also, see Junio's response).
[In order to do this, I would have expected to see one hash table
for each file/blob, so the singleton object took me by surprise.]

An "out of scope for this project" is a perfectly acceptable
response (*particularly* since it is very late in the day to be
bringing this up!).

Ah, yes, I forgot that the parsing code does a tolower() at various
places while accumulating the key string. So the (potentially) non-
normalized keys come from the user via the new API functions and,
rather than putting code to normalize the key in each of those,
just do it once in config_cache_find_entry(). (Although, you could
possibly do that in config_cache_get_value()).  OK.

Hmm, maybe add a short comment to that effect? dunno.

ATB,
