commit 668e3a77090b031bec8254dfc6d816f5f4add54d
Author: Nick Mathewson <ni...@torproject.org>
Date:   Thu Sep 5 11:48:29 2019 -0400

    config: Introduce the concept of an "ungettable" variable.
    
    We had though to make all obsolete and invisible variables
    ungettable, so that GETCONF would reject them.  But it turns out
    that this isn't the current behavior of GETCONF with those
    variables.  So for now, I'm leaving the current behavior unchanged.
    (See ticket 31647 for a proposal to change the behavior.)
