Oh, I see the problem now. I'm not sure how to address that. It was intentional that tweakdefaults is only respected if it's a trusted config entry, so all its items can be treated as trusted.

I think your fix sounds reasonable for the setting of the config items. Should I roll a v3 that moves the tweakdefaults() call to dispatch and make it work this way instead of on (ab)using ui.setconfig?
