I think it would actually be a reasonable solution to avoid casting here
and there on the caller side.

Another option would be to _return_ a non-const char * instead of
outputing it as a by-address parameter. We'd lose the consiseness of

   return git_config_get_string(...)

(but in cases where the return value is ignored, we do not really care)
