Who set that option?

I'll spend some time getting to know the code in general then and we'll see
how the new parser progresses. I'll take a peek on the bugs/features list to
see if there's anything else I can help out with. I think Mercurial is a
very interesting project. I've been using Perforce for the last eight years
and it feels like it has gotten stuck in its progress, so it's time to check
out the new contenders.

mpm told me on IRC he is working on a new config parser that will
allow you to pinpoint the source of config elements. Nice!
