I'm not sure it would cause a problem. I don't believe we're
automatically inserting stuff from the config file into the registry or
vice versa. And, the registry will prevent you from making more than one
name. So if you're trying to put your configuration there, you have no
choice but to put it all together on one line. *shrug*

I believe it will. But having a bunch of stuff on a single line is tough
to read, especially, when you start working on a number of projects. My
'global-ignores' line is somewhere around 400 characters long or more. I
imagine at some point, my editor is going to tell me it can handle the
long line any more. :-)
