Without the context of what future use you want to put this option to,
it is impossible to form an opinion on whether it is the right thing to
do. Hence, not committed now - please provide further info.

Same as before.

Thanks, committed. (Except the one about generate_diffs, which changed

rewrite that block of text now.)

This example is essentially a repeat of the existing one, but:
* for commit_subject_prefix instead of from_addr/to_addr.
* demonstrating the 'little trick'
Whilst I agree some explicit mention of the limitations of configuration
keys might be appropriate in the [maps] documentation, I feel that this
situation is perhaps a little too special-case for the example config file.
